How can I visualize my own vector property as arrows?


Alexander Stukowski:
Only certain particle properties such as Force, Displacement and Dipole Orientation are rendered as arrows by OVITO. To visualize a custom vector property, map it to one of these standard properties.

* This can either happen directly during import of the data file. Some file readers like the LAMMPS dump and XYZ reader allow you to define a custom mapping of file columns to particle properties. Use the Edit Column Mapping button to assign your vector data to the Force property, for example.
* Alternatively, use a Compute Property modifier to set the values of the Force property to the values of your vector property.
