is there a way (how) to I render the trajectories I got from Flow Simulation? Like the pipes, or arrows.
Also the cutplots would look nice in my render
I'm guessing you'll have to do it with a photoshop like program. Print screens, copy/paste sort of thing. I know you can do reports with pictures, but I've never heard of importing/using plots into renders.
Probably I didn't clearly say what I'm meaning
I made a Simulation and inserted trajectories and a cut-plot.
And now I would like to make a picture like
just like the guys from solidworks do for advertising (stock car video)
So just a nice image with the results of the sumulation, in a better quality than just with a simple hardcopy of the screen.
Isn't that posible?
see the attached screen shot
Thanks for the hint, but that's the same like taking a screenshot.
I thougt there might be a way having the same nice kind of picture like with render view, with antialising, nice lighting, shadows and so on.
But looks like that's not possible...
I use photoworks for creating pictures likes these. When you create the streamlines, just goto the assembly mode and render the image however you like. The streamlines do not go away in the assembly mode. Make the model transparent to see the streamlines.
there must be something wrong with my options, I guess...
I open a new assembly and insert my object, which looks like a flow channel (or a pipe).
I start the wizard of Flos Simulation, set everything up and let it run, then I insert streamlines as "Flow Trajectories".
I don't have photoworks, but I think you mean PhotoView 360?
So when I hit the render button the stremlines disappear and just the model itself get's rendered.
Or did I misunderstand what you mean?
It wont work in PhotoView 360. I mean Photoworks. It's an add-in.
Hi Michael: I have done that with the "RenderView" function turned-on, using an AMD card, some time ago. It looked spectacular (reflections and shadows showed very nicely, along with the trajectories).
Micheal: the first picture you provided is simply a print screen liike Mr. Kaiser told you. You just need to change the scene before this. Take a look at the image.
And the second image you provided is the same thing, just with adjusted Transparency of the parts.
I had the exact same question as you when creating graphics for an F1 in Schools car. If you right click on the trajectory, simply select the "Create Curves" option. This will generate the paths as separate components in the assembly tree. For convenience I put them in a folder to keep everything organized. Please note, I did this using tubes in my flow trajectory so I am unsure if this will work with other display options.
