IndexManifolds

You can choose a dimension and an index of a structured grid refering to this dimension. IndexManifolds calculates the surface of this area. If you work with uniform or rectilinear grids the result will be a plane.

IndexManifolds is available for COVISE version 4.5 and higher. It's available for all supported platforms.

Examples

Example 1:

Figure: Example 1 for IndexManifolds (Map)
IndexMani1.png

We use the example map above together with the parameter settings as shown in the Control Panel. The module GenDat generates a structured grid in cylindrical shape. IndexManifolds displays the surface of one area. The result therefore is also a cylinder as you can see in the Renderer output below.

Example 2:

The second example (covise/net/examples/IndexManifolds.net) illustrates the usage of IndexManifolds for a rectilinear grid.
