NAME

MayaVi - A scientific data visualization system using The Visualization Toolkit.  

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the mayavi command. Better information can be found at file:///usr/share/doc/mayavi/guide/book1.html

Usage:

mayavi [options] ... [arg1] [arg2] ...

Where arg1, arg2 ... are optional file names that correspond to saved MayaVi visualizations. Valid options are one or more of the following:

--display DISPLAY

Use DISPLAY for the X Display.

-g --geometry WxH+X+Y

The geometry of the main window in standard X fashion.

-d vtk-file.vtk --vtk vtk-file.vtk

vtk-file.vtk can be any VTK file.

-x plot3d-xyz-file --plot3d-xyz plot3d-xyz-file

The plot3d-xyz-file must be a PLOT3D single block co-ordinate file.

-q plot3d-q-file --plot3d-q plot3d-q-file

The plot3d-q-file must be a PLOT3D single block solution file. The -q option is optional but must always follow the -x/--plot3d-xyz option.

-e ensight-case-file --ensight ensight-case-file

ensight-case-file must be a valid EnSight case file.
EnSightGold
and EnSight6 formats are supported.

-m module-name --module module-name

The passed module name is loaded in the current ModuleManager. The module name must be a valid one if not you will get an error message. If a module is specified as 'User.Module' then the module to be loaded is first searched for in the user defined search paths (configurable via the Preferences dialog) and then in the standard MayaVi modules directory.

--filter filter-name -f filter-name

The passed filter name is loaded in the current ModuleManager. The filter name must be a valid one if not you will get an error message. If the filter is 'UserDefined' then it could be specified as 'UserDefined:vtkSomeFilter' where vtkSomeFilter is a valid VTK class. In this case the filter will not prompt you for the VTK filter to use. If a filter is specified as 'User.Filter' then the filter to be loaded is first searched for in the user defined search paths (configurable via the Preferences dialog) and then in the standard MayaVi filters directory.

-z saved-visualization-file --viz saved-visualization-file --visualization saved-visualization-file

Loads a previously saved MayaVi visualization file passed as the argument.

-M module-manager-file --module-mgr module-manager-file

Loads a module manager saved to a file.
If a file that does not
exist is given this will simply create a new module manager that can be populated with filters and modules.

-w vrml-file --vrml vrml-file

Imports a VRML2 scene given an appropriate file.

-3 3DStudio-file --3ds 3dStudio-file

Imports a 3D Studio scene given an appropriate file.

-n --new-window

Creates a new window.
Any options passed after this will apply
to this newly created window.

-V --version

Prints the MayaVi version.

-h --help

Prints this help message.
