After dragging run.sh it to the Terminal window and hit Enter, this message shows up in HomeBrew / Terminal.

 

I have moved the AI Visualizer folder from Add-ons into Archicad 27 folder > Add-ons > Extra.

And i have moved the sd.webui folder into Archicad 27 folder.

Dear GAG:
I hope you will have a great Thanksgiving and appreciate your intention s to help in solving this issue. 
I am currently facing challenges with the installation of the AI Visualizer in Archicad 27, and I would appreciate your guidance.
This is what is happening today:
  • Python3-venv Error:
    • I followed the first three steps of the installation process outlined in the installation manual.
    • Upon opening Archicad 27 and running the AI Visualizer, I encountered the "ERROR: python3-venv is not installed, aborting" issue.
  • Installation of Brew Package Manager:
    • Following your suggestion, I attempted to install the Brew package manager.
    • Despite providing my password when prompted, the problem persisted after multiple attempts.
  • New Obstacle with Brew Package Manager:
    • Today, I tried reinstalling the Brew package manager by copying the script into my terminal program.
    • However, a new obstacle emerged during the Homebrew script execution. When prompted to insert my password, a "gray key" icon appeared, and I am unable to type the password.
  • AI Visualizer Error - Server Unavailability:
    • Although I can open the AI Visualizer in Archicad 27, I encounter a second error window stating, "Sorry, we could not generate the image; The AI server is not available."
    • I understand that I need to restart the server, but the specific steps for doing so and checking the server address are unclear to me.
I appreciate your time and assistance in resolving these issues.

Ah, I see, you have encountered a very common 'strange' behaviour of the password prompt in Terminal: no symbols are echoed.

This means that when you type your password, you do not see any input by design.

 

So, to solve a problem with password entry:

  • When you see the password prompt in Terminal, just type your password blindly and press Enter (aka Return) on the keyboard.

GAG:
Thank you very much for trying to help. Your assistance is appreciated.

Yes that work to install the BREW. I then continued by drawing the "run.sh and got the ERROR: python3-venv is not installed, aborting? But do not know what to do next!!!

After installing the brew package manager, you should install the required dependencies.

The idea is to install brew as a first step, and then install other packages via brew as a second step.

 

So, in the Terminal run the `brew install` command with package list as a parameter:

brew install cmake protobuf rust python@3.10 git wget

 In the above command:

  • brew — is a main executable to run
  • install — is a main command for brew
  • cmake protobuf rust python@3.10 git wget — is a list of packages to install

If you get an error that `brew` is unknown, then run the same command but with the full path to brew:

/opt/homebrew/bin/brew install cmake protobuf rust python@3.10 git wget

 Where:

  • /opt/homebrew/bin/brew — is a full path to brew executable on Apple Silicon macOS

After running the above command, you'll have all the necessary dependencies installed.

Only then can you proceed to execute `run.sh' in the 'sd.webui' folder.

Dear GAG,

Good morning and, thank you very much once more! I just want to make sure as I do not understand what I am doing. I followed the steps above, and this "brew" WAS INSTALLED. I then executed the first command:

brew install cmake protobuf rust python@3.10 git wget

It didn't seem to do much, so I proceeded with the second command:

/opt/homebrew/bin/brew install cmake protobuf rust python@3.10 git wget

Voila! It started processing, and the screen is moving forward. I am now like a kid at Christmas! However, I am not sure if I should close the terminal. It is unclear if the process has not been completed. If I try to close it, I am asked if I want to terminate the process, which I do not want to do until it is done. What should I do next? It seems like this will be the last step before trying to do my first visualization, and I can't wait to b that!

Thank you for your guidance. I will try to wait for your response, but I am not closing anything for as long as I can.

Best regards,

Dear GAG: I N C R E D I B L E   !!!

I could not wait so this is what I did.

I quit AC where I was working and reopened. Then open the visualization pallet and try my first test with AI Visualizer!!!

 

IT WORK!!!

 

Thank you very much and apologies for all of the confusion. I know can close the terminal!!!!

Please, answer the same questions that I have asked in this post.

 

  1. Have you followed the installation instructions?
  2. Did you install the brew package manager?
  3. Have you installed all required packages?
/opt/homebrew/bin/brew install cmake protobuf rust python@3.10 git wget

 

Your terminal log shows that you don't have Python installed.

George

Hi, I have the same problem (python3-venv is not installed)

 

And yes I have followed the installation instructions, installed brew package manager and also installed all other required packaged. 

 

Is the problem as simple as a restart required? 

Didn't find the answer?
