3D visualization functions

Below are the functions for visualizing the 3D calculation results.

Use [3D Post-processing Window] for 3D visualization of simulation results as explained below.

[Open New 3D Post-processing Window]

Either of the following actions opens a new [3D Post-processing Window].

Menu bar: [Calculation Results] (R) –> [Open New 3D Post-processing Window]

Operation Toolbar: Select post3d-window-icon

The new [3D Post-processing Window] (Figure 401) will open.
