Trying to install speckle blender connector to blender 3.6 LTS, see the following traceback

We are aware of some issues with the Blender BIM addon conflicting with ours.

Please can you follow the below instructions:

  • Uninstall the BlenderBIM addon using their instructions
  • Uninstall the Speckle connector via Speckle manager.
  • Install version 230506 of blender BIM
  • Install the latest stable version of the Speckle Blender connector (currently 2.17.0), through manager.

Please let us know how you get on, Iā€™d be happy to assist further if needed.

Please also be advised that we only recently added support for Blender 4.0 (in 2.17 versions of Speckle), for the most stable experience we recommend staying on 3.X versions.

the above advice helped, thank you. Will continue with this setup.

@Antavius_Nash, Please try our latest 2.17.0 connector, following our install instructions here.

let me know how you get on.

Strange ā€¦
(Since I got Speckle installed and activated while I had BlenderBIM uninstalled)
I still have the latest (official) BlenderBIM installed in even Blender 4.1 Alpha ā€¦
and now ran the new Speckle 2.17 Blender Connector Update from Manager ā€¦

But my updated Speckle Connector still works in Blender ā€¦

So I would say it is not a direct interference between both AddOns,
(I mean the newer BlenderBIMs with that new Python version or whatever)
more something to do with how to install ?

So far I think, if you install Speckle first (initially), it will work ā€¦

I think my problems not being able to update/activate Speckle was more related
to initially having outdated BlenderBIM versions (early September) in all of my
Blender 4 versions ā€¦


I just tried a newer Blender 4.0.x version on Windows ā€¦
yeah, Speckle currently not there ā€¦
But I also see that I have an old version of BlenderBIM installed too.
(From Juli !?)

Will uninstall BBIM,
update Speckle,
look if I can get it activated and running,
install current BBIM again,
check if both work in harmony ā€¦


It (or both addOns) works again on Windows like a charm too !
