Turn on/off coordinate frames
This issue was created automatically from an original Mantis Issue. Further discussion may take place here.
The coordinate frames are stored in the exodus files, and can be extracted using standard calls such as ex_get_coordinate_frames(). There may be up to a few hundred frames in a model. Each frame is defined fairly simply,
- An index
- An indicator of cartesian, cylindrical or spherical
- An origin (3 reals)
- A Z direction vector (3 reals)
- A point in the XZ plane (3 reals).
Eventually, we would like to turn on/off any of these frames, but initially we would be happy if they could all be turned on/off together.
Display is a simple glyph like the one currently used for displaying the origin. The glyph should indicate the coordinate axes.
The need for this is immediate (what isn't). What is happening is that we are seeing support issues because this data is stored in the file and can't be examined in any way be the analysts.
