MeshViz

The High-performance 3D Scientific Data Visualization Toolkit

MeshViz is a high-level data visualization development toolkit designed for scientific, manufacturing, finite element, fluid dynamics, and reservoir engineering software tools.

MeshViz XLM delivers even more performance by providing a unique Advanced Virtual Programming Interface (AVPI) that allows support of any kind of mesh and unique memory optimization for data storage.

Supports any type of regular and unstructured meshes
  • Structured mesh: cartesian, regular, irregular
  • Unstructured volume mesh: polyhedral, tetrahedron, hexahedron, pyramid, and wedge


    MeshViz XLM:

  • Polygonal surfaces mesh: triangle, quadrangle, and polygonal
  • Unstructured IJK mesh compatible with reservoir simulation
  • Structured meshes with faults
  • Any type of mesh defined by the Advanced Virtual Programming Interface (AVPI)

MeshViz XLM is available for C++ and Java through a separate license. MeshViz XLM expands most of MeshViz capabilities by providing an Advanced Virtual Programming Interface, that does not require to copy the mesh in memory, and that allows support of user-defined types of mesh.

High-level data mapping

  • Isosurface, Mesh Skin (Hull)
  • Arbitrary cut plane, logical slices
  • Cross-sections and cross-contours, annotated contouring lines
  • Mesh limits and mesh edges
  • 3D wireframe skeletons
  • Stream lines, isoline, highly optimized probing tools
  • Any number of scalar or vector datasets attached to mesh points or cells
  • Undefined values, dead cells, and cell filtering support
  • Colored surface, isolines, streamlines,...
  • Advanced data-to-color mapping techniques
Advanced mesh extraction (with MeshViz XLM)
  • From a volume mesh interface, extraction of new mesh representing a specific feature (isosurface, skin, logical slice,...)
  • The new mesh is returned as an abstract interface and can be used as input of any other extract
  • Parallelized extraction
  • Full access to advanced feature extraction methods
Wide range of charting types
  • 2D/3D cartesian, angular, polar, or time axes
  • 2D/3D linear, logarithmic, or generalized multi-axis system
  • 2D/3D linear, stair, spline, histogram, or raised points curve
  • Legends
  • Statistical representations: single and multiple histograms, or 2D/3D pie chart
  • High/low/close charts, error curves, or point field bars
  • 2D/3D generalized primitives: parallelograms, circles, circle arcs, arrows, labels, or markers

Manage very large meshes (with MeshViz XLM)
  • Support meshes with more than 10 Million cells thanks to a unique direct data access
  • Benefit from a direct access to Mesh data avoiding data copy in memory
  • Define you own virtual mesh data interface that fits your application

MeshViz XLM is available for C++ only through a separate license. MeshViz XLM expands most of MeshViz capabilities by providing an Advanced Virtual Programming Interface (AVPI), that does not require to copy the mesh in memory , and that allows support of user-defined types of mesh.

Handle any kind of mesh (with MeshViz XLM)
  • Support any type of regular and unstructured 3D/2D meshes from CAE, FEA, CFD and Reservoir Engineering applications
  • Thanks to the unique MeshViz XLM's Advanced Virtual Programming Interface, define your own type of mesh

MeshViz XLM is available for C++ only through a separate license. MeshViz XLM expands most of MeshViz capabilities by providing an Advanced Virtual Programming Interface (AVPI), that does not require to copy the mesh in memory , and that allows support of user-defined types of mesh.

Advanced representations for multidimensional data
  • Fast, high-quality rendering techniques
  • Transform complex datasets into effective representations
  • Understand multi-physics simulation using high-end visualization techniques
Use high-level charting objects
  • MeshViz brings you a comprehensive collection of high-level objects for effective 2D/3D chart representations
  • From all types of axis systems and legends to statistical representations and 2D/3D generalized primitives, the MeshViz API delivers a rich and extensive set of object-oriented classes that will bring scientific data clearly into focus
