General options

  • Draw interior vectors: This option lets you choose if all vectors should be drawn or draw only the ones placed on model lines.
  • Color Mode: This option lets you choose if vectors are drawn in one color (Mono Color) or in several colors (Color Modules).
  • Number of colors: If you use Color Modules to draw vectors, it is possible to choose the number of colors.
  • Change Color (mono): When vectors are drawn in (Mono Color) Color Mode, they are drawn in green. You can change this green color selecting this entry.
  • Offset: With this option, you control where the vector should be in relation of the node, ranging from 0, to tie the tail of the arrow to the node, to 1, to tie the tip of the arrow to the node.
  • Tensorial results:
  • Tension vector color: Change the color used for vectors that represents tension.
  • Compression vector color: Change the color used for vectors that represents compression.
  • Vector detail: The level of detail can be adjusted to draw the vectors quicker or nicer. The different options are:
  • Line: The vector is drawn as a line, without the arrow head.
  • Point+Line: The vector is drawn as a line, and the head as a point. The style used to draw these point like arrow heads can be modified through the point options, see Mesh elements.
  • 5 Lines: The vector is drawn as a line, and the head is drawn with four lines.
  • 2 Triangles: The arrow head will be drawn with two intersecting triangles.
  • 4 Triangles: The arrow head will be drawn as cones of four triangles.
  • 8 Triangles: The arrow head will be drawn as cones of eight triangles.
  • Vector size type: Allows the user to set the size of the vectors to be:
  • Fixed sized: Then the factor used when the vectors are displayed is the number of pixels of the vector.
  • Modulus dependent: Then the factor used when the vectors are displayed is the factor of magnification of the vector.
  • Filter factor: The displayed amount of vectors can be limited when there are lots of vectors to be drawn, for instance, when very dense meshes are used. The option allows to drawn only one vector of every N vectors.
