    For Maya 2023 users:

    P.S. This is modification of this script to working with new versions  of Maya that uses new Python 3.

    I'm using Maya 2023

    This is the error when I'm in the script editor window:
    Error: line 1: ModuleNotFoundError: file line 1: No module named 'zen'

    Can you help me in any way? Thanks!

    Zen tools was working but now isn't.
    Yes I have Bonus Tools installed. Yes I have matrixNodes.mll closestPointOnCurve.mll  and pointOnMeshInfo.mll set to loaded and auto load in my plug in manager.
    When I type this command:
    python("import zen");evalDeferred("zenTools");
    I get this error line:
    # Error: NameError: file <maya console> line 1: name 'python' is not defined #
    Yes I am doing this on the python tab of the script editor. Can anyone help? Anyone at all?

    @Marjan Mahdjoubi do you have the Maya Bonus Tools installed? I think they are required to run this

    this doesn't work with maya 2017 anymore. Here is the error: # Error: line 1: Plug-in, "closestPointOnCurve" was compiled against too old a version of the Maya API and is thus incompatible with the current Maya version. (closestPointOnCurve) # 
    please fix this. This tool is the only reason why I still use Maya over Modo
