A python module for scientific analysis and visualization of эd objects
To visualize a file from a web URL (or from your Dropbox!),
simply type in your terminal:
pip install vedo
To visualize a full 3D interactive scene, type:
Let's create an interactive 3D scene with a simple cone,
in 3 lines of python code:
from vedo import Cone
# Create a simple cone
c = Cone()
# Show it (with axes)
# Now you can interact with the 3D scene,
# Press "h" and explore the possibilities!
Let's write a simple python script that loads a polygonal Mesh and generates
a cool rendering by adding some custom light sources to the scene:
from vedo import *
# Load a polygonal mesh, make it white and glossy:
man = Mesh('https://vedo.embl.es/example/data/man.vtk')
# Create two points:
p1 = Point([ 1,0,1], c='yellow')
p2 = Point([-1,0,2], c='red')
# Add colored light sources at the point positions:
l1 = Light(p1, c='yellow')
l2 = Light(p2, c='red')
# Show everything in one go:
show(man, l1, l2, p1, p2, "Hello World", axes=True)
Let's create a Volume - a volumetric dataset - from a
import numpy as np
from vedo import *
# Create a scalar field: the distance from point (15,15,15)
X, Y, Z = np.mgrid[:30, :30, :30]
scalar_field = ((X-15)**2 + (Y-15)**2 + (Z-15)**2)/225
# Create the Volume from the numpy object
vol = Volume(scalar_field)
# Generate the surface that contains all voxels in range [1,2]
lego = vol.legosurface(1,2).addScalarBar()
