Dear Alex,

I am using OVITO to color my structure based on per-atom values (Figure1 in attached files), but to provide a better description to my readers I would like to produce a 3D-contour(map) plot using my results (see Figure2 in attached for an example). Is this possible with OVITO at the moment?
I believe that this kind of image rendering would be interesting for the microscopic simulation practitioners since sometimes 2D/3D contours and maps can be more helpful in describing phenomena.

Dear Afshin,

If you understand you correctly, you would like to transfer some atomic property from the unstructured atoms to a three-dimensional structured grid. Is that right? So this function would be similar to the existing Bin and Reduce function, but using a three-dimensional grid of bins instead of two-dimensional.

Dear Alex,

Thank you very much. This is exactly what I am looking for. Currently, it is only producing 2D contours (for example only "vector 1 and 2" in "Bin and reduce" analysis) and I intend to have "vector 1 and 2 and 3" for 3D demonstration. Also, is it possible to save this contours as an animation or separate image files?
