Any recommendations for a free software to render a tetrahedron mesh (vtk format) clearly with its elements?
I couldn’t manage to set nice rendering in Sofa. Neither in ParaView, nor in MeshLab. In the mean time, I’m giving a trial to tetview.
As you know, we usually use Paraview.
If it doesn’t work in SOFA I like to use the TetrahedronSetGeometryAlgorithms: by hiding the VisualModels, you can then set drawTetrahedra=”1″ and set the scaling to drawScaleTetrahedra=”0.8″ this is not bad.
Finally, for advanced render, I would go for Blender ..
I hope this helps
The setting using the TetrahedronSetGeometryAlgorithms seems not bad at all !
BTW, when you mentioned ParaView, Do you mean by selecting the volume representation from the drop box in the toolbar, or am I missing something? A brief explanation of setting steps would be helpful as well.
About Paraview, I just meant that you can visualize 3D volumetric meshes with it.
Paraview can do it, with crop options (like SOFA) and others.
Next time we met, we can have a Paraview tour together but I am no huge expert of the latest versions.
Me neither not an expert 😉 I usually use Paraview in the same way you described, but I thought that there might be some magic configurations I don’t know. If I learned something interesting, I’ll share it.
