Information

This information is part of the Modelica Standard Library maintained by the Modelica Association.

Package Visualizers contains components to visualize 3-dimensional shapes. These components are the basis for the animation features of the MultiBody library.

FixedShape
FixedShape2
Visualizing an elementary shape with dynamically varying shape attributes. FixedShape has one connector frame_a, whereas FixedShape2 has additionally a frame_b for easier connection to further visual objects. The following shape types are supported:
 
model Visualizers.FixedShape
FixedFrame Visualizing a coordinate system including axes labels with fixed sizes:
model Visualizers.FixedFrame
FixedArrow,
SignalArrow
Visualizing an arrow. Model "FixedArrow" provides a fixed sized arrow, model "SignalArrow" provides an arrow with dynamically varying length that is defined by an input signal vector:
Ground Visualizing the x-y plane by a box:
Torus Visualizing a torus:
VoluminousWheel Visualizing a wheel:
PipeWithScalarField Visualizing a pipe with a scalar field represented by a color coding:
Advanced Package that contains components to visualize 3-dimensional shapes where all parts of the shape can vary dynamically. Basic knowledge of Modelica is needed in order to utilize the components of this package.

The colors of the visualization components are declared with the predefined type MultiBody.Types.Color. This is a vector with 3 elements, {r, g, b}, and specifies the color of the shape. {r,g,b} are the "red", "green" and "blue" color parts. Note, r g, b are given as Integer[3] in the ranges 0 .. 255, respectively.
