I've tried multiple times and different ways to install SimpleCV for Python2 on my Raspberry Pi 3. I was able to do this with no problem on RP2.

The first method I tried was using pip:
sudo pip install https://github.com/ingenuitas/SimpleCV/zipball/master
This ended up with the following error:

ConnectTimeout: HTTPSConnectionPool(host='github.com', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /ingenuitas/SimpleCV/zipball/master (Caused by ConnectTimeoutError(<urllib3.connection.VerifiedHTTPSConnection object at 0x76176d30>, 'Connection to github.com timed out. (connect timeout=15)'))

This doesn't make sense because I can ping the site and I'm definitely connected to the internet.

So I moved on and tried to install it using source:

mkdir ~/Code
cd ~/Code
git clone git://github.com/sightmachine/SimpleCV.git
cd SimpleCV
sudo pip install -r requirements.txt
sudo python setup.py develop

However after installation when i try to run it i get an error about Scipy:
ImportError: No module named scipy.ndimage

So then I tried installing Scipy, which literally said it could not find any files associated with Scipy.

I'm pretty much exhausted of ideas here, I don't understand why none of this isn't working, whether a module changed or if there is something wrong with my Pi. How can I troubleshoot this issue?

I succeed running SimpleCV on RPi3 without updating os from RPi2. I just installed like following steps.

mkdir ~/Code
cd ~/Code
git clone git://github.com/sightmachine/SimpleCV.git
cd SimpleCV
sudo pip install -r requirements.txt
sudo pip install svgwrite
sudo python setup.py develop

You must update os using RPi2,then take SD Card to Rpi3. It's work.

    Why would this work? What is the basis for this? As the OP makes no mention of RPi2 other than installing it worked on a Pi2, Why would he have to have a Pi2 to install. – Steve Robillard Apr 14 '16 at 10:57
