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
vedo https://vedo.embl.es/examples/data/panther.stl.gz
To visualize a full 3D interactive scene, type:
vedo https://vedo.embl.es/examples/geo_scene.npz
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 default axes style)
c.show(axes=1)
# Now you can interact with the 3D scene,
# press "h" to 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')
man.c('white').lighting('glossy')
# 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 numpy object:
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()
show(lego, axes=True)
Draw a creative scatter plot of a boring 2D Gaussian distribution.
Let the marker size be proportional to sin(2y)
and the Red level of its [R,G,B] color proportional to sin^{2}(2x).
Finally add a simple 1D histogram of variable x on the top of it:
from vedo.pyplot import plot, histogram, show
import numpy as np
n = 2000
x = np.random.randn(n)
y = np.random.randn(n)
R = np.sin(2*x)**2
marker_sizes = np.sin(2*y)/8
marker_cols = np.c_[R, np.zeros(n), np.zeros(n)] # RGB
p = plot(x, y,
marker=">", # marker style
ms=marker_sizes, # marker size array
mc=marker_cols, # marker color array
ma=0.2, # const. marker alpha
lw=0, # no line width
aspect=4/3, # plot aspect ratio
)
h = histogram(x, aspect=18/3).shift(0, p.ybounds(1)*1.1)
show(p, h)
