vtk_export

class ansys.dpf.core.operators.serialization.vtk_export.vtk_export(file_path=None, mesh=None, fields1=None, fields2=None, config=None, server=None)

Write the input field and fields container into a given vtk path

available inputs:
  • file_path (str)

  • mesh (MeshedRegion) (optional)

  • fields1 (FieldsContainer, Field)

  • fields2 (FieldsContainer, Field)

available outputs:

Examples

>>> from ansys.dpf import core as dpf
>>> # Instantiate operator
>>> op = dpf.operators.serialization.vtk_export()
>>> # Make input connections
>>> my_file_path = str()
>>> op.inputs.file_path.connect(my_file_path)
>>> my_mesh = dpf.MeshedRegion()
>>> op.inputs.mesh.connect(my_mesh)
>>> my_fields1 = dpf.FieldsContainer()
>>> op.inputs.fields1.connect(my_fields1)
>>> my_fields2 = dpf.FieldsContainer()
>>> op.inputs.fields2.connect(my_fields2)
>>> # Instantiate operator and connect inputs in one line
>>> op = dpf.operators.serialization.vtk_export(file_path=my_file_path,mesh=my_mesh,fields1=my_fields1,fields2=my_fields2)
>>> # Get output data
static default_config()

Returns the default config for a given operator. This config can then be changed to the user needs and be used to instantiate the given operator

Parameters
  • name (str) – Name of the operator. For example ‘U’.

  • server (server.DPFServer, optional) – Server with channel connected to the remote or local instance. When None, attempts to use the the global server.

property inputs

Enables to connect inputs to the operator

Returns

property config

Returns a copy of the current config of the operator. To use the config that you modify, please use operator.config = new_config or create an operator with the new config as a parameter.

Config

connect(pin, inpt, pin_out=0)

Connect an input on the operator using a pin number.

Parameters

Examples

Compute the minimum of displacement by chaining the 'U' and 'min_max_fc' operators.

>>> from ansys.dpf import core as dpf
>>> from ansys.dpf.core import examples
>>> data_src = dpf.DataSources(examples.multishells_rst)
>>> disp_op = dpf.operators.result.displacement()
>>> disp_op.inputs.data_sources(data_src)
>>> max_fc_op = dpf.operators.min_max.min_max_fc()
>>> max_fc_op.inputs.connect(disp_op.outputs)
>>> max_field = max_fc_op.outputs.field_max()
>>> max_field.data
array([[0.59428386, 0.00201751, 0.0006032 ]])
get_output(pin=0, output_type=None)

Returns the output of the operator on the pin number.

Parameters
  • pin (int, optional) – Number of the output pin.

  • output_type (core.type enum, optional) – The requested type of the output.
