remove surface mesh
« on: March 13, 2019, 04:19:37 PM »
Dear users,

I would like to use ovitos to perform DXA analysis without activating the surface mesh.
This is the Python script successfully used in the version 2.9:
Code: [Select]
pipeline = import_file("../moving-avg.*.cstm.gz")
modifier = DislocationAnalysisModifier()
modifier.input_crystal_structure = DislocationAnalysisModifier.Lattice.BCC
In the dev version 3.0 the latest line does not work:
Code: [Select]
Could you let me know please how to disable SurfaceMeshVis in ver 3.0 dev?

Thank you in advance.

The DislocationAnalysisModifier is currently not providing direct access to the visual element of the defect mesh. This is a mistake, which I am going to fix in the next development build of Ovito 3.0.

In the meantime, you can use the following workaround:
Code: [Select]
defect_mesh = pipeline.compute().surfaces['dxa-defect-mesh']
defect_mesh.vis.enabled = False
