download_cubemap_space_16k()[source]#

Download the 16k space cubemap.

This cubemap was generated by downloading the 16k image from: Deep Star Maps 2020 and converting it using https://jaxry.github.io/panorama-to-cubemap/

See vtk-data/Data/cubemap_space for more details.

Returns
pyvista.Texture

Texture containing a skybox.

Notes

This is a 38MB file and may take a while to download.

Examples

Display the cubemap as both an environment texture and an actor. Note that here we’re displaying the 4k as the 16k is a bit too expensive to display in the documentation.

>>> import pyvista as pv
>>> from pyvista import examples
>>> cubemap = examples.download_cubemap_space_4k()
>>> pl = pv.Plotter(lighting=None)
>>> _ = pl.add_actor(cubemap.to_skybox())
>>> pl.set_environment_texture(cubemap, True)
>>> pl.camera.zoom(0.4)
>>> _ = pl.add_mesh(pv.Sphere(), pbr=True, roughness=0.24, metallic=1.0)
>>> pl.show()
