Dear Prabhu,

Big favour to ask: could you build wheels for running VTK headless i.e. 
offscreen rendering? I think the option to support this is 

That would be a very big help. I've seen loads of queries on how to do 
this but almost no clear solutions.

Then running VTK in headless mode would be as simple as first doing:

pip install vtk-headless

... then you're off to the races!
