In order to use these tools you need Pixotope running on that machine. At the minimum, a Data hub and Store needs to run.

The examples work the same on a Single-machine as on a Multi-machine network. So if your machine is a Client that is connected to a Server the tools will be able to use both machines, and any other connected machines.

Data Integration Examples

In the Calibration Project shipped together with Pixotope Engine you can find a level containing blueprints (and code snippets) set up to present various ways of using Pixotope API.

Read more on that here:

Code Examples

Aside simple API examples, we have also included a suite of small internal developer tools that we have developed ourselves to diagnose and develop features. These tools we are providing as open-source under a permissive license in this repository.

Keep in mind that they might be a bit unpolished.
