Troubleshooting

The addon sometimes depends on features that are in newer versions of Blender. So the first thing should be to update your Blender version.

Possible solutions to installation problems:
  • Enable Auto Run Python Scripts in the User Preferences > File tab.
  • AN depends on the module numpy that is distributed with official releases of Blender. If you build Blender yourself or use custom builds (e.g. from graphicall.org) you have to make sure that they contain numpy. If not you have to get another Blender build or install numpy manually.
