## Error reproduced

```
import torch
tensor1 = torch.tensor([1.0,2.0],requires_grad=True)
print(tensor1)
print(type(tensor1))
tensor1 = tensor1.numpy()
print(tensor1)
print(type(tensor1))
```

which leads to the exact same error for the line `tensor1 = tensor1.numpy()`

:

```
tensor([1., 2.], requires_grad=True)
<class 'torch.Tensor'>
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/badScript.py", line 8, in <module>
tensor1 = tensor1.numpy()
RuntimeError: Can't call numpy() on Variable that requires grad. Use var.detach().numpy() instead.
Process finished with exit code 1
```

## Generic solution

this was suggested to you in your error message, just replace `var`

with your variable name

```
import torch
tensor1 = torch.tensor([1.0,2.0],requires_grad=True)
print(tensor1)
print(type(tensor1))
tensor1 = tensor1.detach().numpy()
print(tensor1)
print(type(tensor1))
```

which returns as expected

```
tensor([1., 2.], requires_grad=True)
<class 'torch.Tensor'>
[1. 2.]
<class 'numpy.ndarray'>
Process finished with exit code 0
```

## Some explanation

You need to convert your tensor to another tensor that isn’t requiring a gradient in addition to its actual value definition. This other tensor can be converted to a numpy array. Cf. this discuss.pytorch post. (I think, more precisely, that one needs to do that in order to get the actual tensor out of its pytorch `Variable`

wrapper, cf. this other discuss.pytorch post).
