Cresset Python Extensions for Flare

Cresset Python Extensions extend the functionality of our Flare™ structure-based design platform. These are available to all Flare users free of charge.

Flare Python Extensions

The Flare Python Extensions are a collection of Python scripts which add powerful new functionality to Flare. After installing them, a new 'Extensions' ribbon tab will be added to the Flare GUI. As you hover your mouse over each of the buttons, a tooltip will appear providing a short explanation of the extension’s function.

Download the Flare API extensions, and watch the short video Installing Flare™ Python extensions on Windows® for installation instructions.
