Installation Guide for AI


Hi all,


the installation guide for Macs is not working with the content in chapter 3:


What exactly are the two commands? IS it possible to put the commands in text instead of a screenshot?




Norbert Kucsma

Hi Aixtreme,


Thanks for the question.


In the 3rd part of the Mac installation guide, the command you need to use is:

/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL"


In the 4th chapter:

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


Please let us know if this fails.


Kind regards,

the command line in chapter 4 is not working:

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


I get:

Hi Aixtreme,


Thanks for the screenshot, there are two possible answers to the issue. 

The first command (3rd chapter) was not successful, or you are trying to install the AI Engine on an Intel Mac. 


Please try again the 3rd step, what result does that show in the Terminal? In case you have an Intel Mac the add-on is not compatible with those chips only with Apple Silicon.


Kind regards,

I have the same problem too. why is it not compatible with intel chips? when I look in the folder I find both the intel and apple silicon files.

@borda exactly my thoughts. 
So does it mean there is no solution for Intel-Macs? Then remove all the installer for Intel-Macs and by this, the download of 18GB! can also be reduced.😡




I switched now to an Apple Silicon device. 

Installation of all the stuff via Terminal was running till the end. I followed all the steps in the installation guide.


Then started AC27 and placed a simple morph cube and tried the AI Visualizer. After a while I got an error in AC27 and in the Terminal (see screenshots.)

Then I tried the setting with unchecking VRAM with the same result. 

Is there a minimum RAM Requirement? On my Mac I have 16GB RAM..


Best regards

Additional information: 

I started the process again and opened the activity monitor. Python is taking more than 20GB Ram and then it crashed again: see screenshots..

@Aixtreme, there is an answer for you:


@borda, there is an answer for you:



P.S. To admins: search engine on this forum is very limited, I can't even find my own posts with specific text. 


@GAG did not work.
