As a workaround, you can put the following in your

if pf.console:
    pf.console.runSource('from pyformex.gui.draw import *')

The startup.py (if it exists) is executed as first script on starting pyFormex.

Because the console is experimental? ;)

No, seriously, it is supposed to load all the pyFormex Globals (which includes draw* if the gui is loaded), but I guess that because the console is loaded before the gui is operational, the draw* symbols are not included. So this is a bug and it should be fixed indeed.

in the console this module has to be imported explicitely
can be imported by default?
