# sphinx_gallery_thumbnail_number = 2
import pyvista as pv
from pyvista import examples
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

# Get a sample file
filename = examples.planefile
mesh = pv.read(filename)

You can also take a screenshot without creating an interactive plot window using the pyvista.Plotter:

plotter = pv.Plotter(off_screen=True)
plotter.add_mesh(mesh, color="orange")
plotter.show(screenshot='airplane.png')
screenshot
