Reload imported modules, Python / Rhino7

Hi guys,

I am developing python scripts that import other scripts from the same directory. It works as expected, however, any changes to the file I am importing do not update until the Rhino is reloaded.

I’ve tried: reload(myModule), as suggested in similar topics, but it does not do the trick. The new methods are still not available. Any ideas?

Python script not updating on rhino



you need to reload the module - It does not work with for instance

from myModule import my_thing

Does that help ? Are you saving the myModule file each time?


Are you aware of the ResetScriptengine functionality.

iirc it’s a command by the name as stated above.

I am saving myModule each time, yet.
How would that work though, since Rhino is not seeing updates to the module - I’d have thought to reload myModule rather than a function that doesn’t yet exist? That doesn’t help either.

I came across ResetScriptEngine, reading here: Save all -> reset script-engine -> run. It didn’t help.
