you rpython script requires parameters.

One way to run it is to drag ond drop the stl file on the python script.
This works at least under windows

ANother way os to open a shell window (terminal / cmd)
and call the script by hand,

python measure-volume.py path_to_your_st_file.

you did not run the script  from a console, but from a console, where you started python already.


The 'old-fashioned' complicated way to test a python script is from the cmd-shell
Just

press WIndows-r
type then 'c' 'm' 'd' and enter

or start cmd.exe from the start menu (it's somewhere in Programmes / Accessories)


Now in the cmd window go to the directory where you have your python Program


Let's imagine, that your Python program is in C:\mycode
then you would type following lines

C:
cd \mycode
measure-volume.py path_to_your_st_file.

if this doesn't work
python measure-volume.py path_to_your_st_file

if this doesn't work

C:\Python33\python measure-volume.py path_to_your_st_file

You seem to have multiple versions of python installed.

It's probably best to stick with one of them:

The first screenshot was done with python3.3

now you try to run Ironpython
I don't have any experrience with the particularities of ironpython, but if you really wanted to run the script with it, then you had to type:

C:\Programfiles\....\IP64.exe c:\measure_volume.py

I would however recommend to run it with CPython 2.7 or 3.3 which are normally (if you didn't choose a custom location) in

Python 2.7 is located in
C:\Python27\python.exe

I don't have python 3.3 but probably it will be located in
C:\Python33\python.exe
