Installing Mayavi with Python 3

After a few hours I finally managed to install Mayavi in a virtual conda environment, so now I’m able to use it with Jupyter.

Installing Mayavi on a Python 2 environment only takes a simple

pip install mayavi

Shout out to the Vegan and Depressed guy whose blog post was the main source for this how-to.
