Manual Installation (Advanced User)

The Package Manager makes installing a simple process, but if you need to do this manually here's how.

Tools should be installed to a common eblabs_hub folder. The install path should be one folder up from the eblabs_hub folder. Make sure that there are blank __init__.py files within all folders.

install_path = 'E:/path/to/tools/folder/'
package_id = 'WorldSpaceTools'

import os
import sys
if not install_path in sys.path:
    sys.path.append(install_path)

import eblabs_hub.WorldSpaceTools.scripts.worldspace as tool

tool.window.load()

    Hi Eric,
    I mailed you this question before.
    What is the difference between Studio and Single User license?

    • Eric

      Hi @copyhourstefan,
      My apologies I didn’t receive your message. How did you contact me?
      The two options are related to licensing. Single, is for an artist who is using the tool themselves. Studio is for a company where the cool is then allowed to be installed for a team.
      More detailed info here:
      https://eblabs.com/license-agreement-2/
      Hope this helps!

    Thanks Eric. I think I tried to use the email form. I have a small request. Can you add different control shapes as well? Like a Locator or Cube? The user can switch in between just like switching colors.

    Hey Eric,
    We’d like to consider a studio license but there is no direct access to the license agreement on this page. Would you please add a link to it from here?
    Thank you!
