Hello everyone,
Iím looking for a way to visualize a set of data using iso-surfaces. The set of data is a result-file of a few computations with three different parameters. I want to span the 3D-vector-space with these 3 parameters. The locations of the points in this vector space are given by a sobol sequence, thus they are distributed randomly.
Each of these nodes is getting a value, e.g. degree of efficiency or impulse. Now I want to create an iso-surface with this value, but it doesnít work.
I tried it in EnSight and Paraview, but the result (ďno result!Ē) is always the same.
One Problem could be, that I donít have a grid. And no cells either.
Maybe anyone has an idea to that problemÖ or a suggestion about another program I could use.
Thanks
MrMcMahon

What you have is a scattered data. You can triangulate it and then use any visualization tool.

Some tools already have ability to triangulate a scattered dataset.
