Add Nodal Labels on Plots#

You can custom labels to specific nodes with specific label properties. If label for a node is missing, by default nodal scalar value is shown.

First, import the DPF-Core module as dpf_core and import the included examples file and DpfPlotter

from ansys.dpf import core as dpf
from ansys.dpf.core import examples
from ansys.dpf.core.plotter import DpfPlotter

Next, open an example and print out the model object. The Model class helps to organize access methods for the result by keeping track of the operators and data sources used by the result file.

Printing the model displays:

  • Analysis type

  • Available results

  • Size of the mesh

  • Number of results

model = dpf.Model(examples.msup_transient)
print(model)

Out:

Get the stress tensor and connect time scoping. Make sure to define the scoping as "Nodal" as the requested location, as the labels are supported only for Nodal results.

stress_tensor = model.results.stress()
time_scope = dpf.Scoping()
time_scope.ids = [20]  # [1, 2]
stress_tensor.inputs.time_scoping.connect(time_scope)
stress_tensor.inputs.requested_location.connect("Nodal")
# field = stress_tensor.outputs.fields_container.get_data()[0]

norm_op = dpf.Operator("norm_fc")
norm_op.inputs.connect(stress_tensor.outputs)
field_norm_stress = norm_op.outputs.fields_container()[0]
print(field_norm_stress)

norm_op2 = dpf.Operator("norm_fc")
disp = model.results.displacement()
disp.inputs.time_scoping.connect(time_scope)
norm_op2.inputs.connect(disp.outputs)
field_norm_disp = norm_op2.outputs.fields_container()[0]
print(field_norm_disp)

Get the meshed region

mesh_set = model.metadata.meshed_region

Plot the results on the mesh, show the minimum and maximum.
