Image is used to capture image of specified quantity.


IMAGE(“name”) { parameters}


User-given name


name (string)
User-given name of the command. The instance of a given command is referenced using this parameter.
cut_planes (string)
Cut planes to include in the image
parts (string)
Parts to include in the image
iso_surfaces (string)
Iso surfaces to include in the image
streamlines (string)
Streamlines to include in the image
image_type (enum)
Type of images to be generated
Options: static, cut_plane_sweep
views (string)
Views to capture the image from
sweep_planes (string)
Planes to use in sweep
sweep_range_type (enum)
Sweep range parameters
Options: direct, sweep_increment, number_of_sweep_locations
number_of_sweep_locations (integer)
Number of sweep locations to generate images from. Looks at model size to determine range then automatically sets the plane locations (computes interval by diving length by number of sweep locations).
sweep_increment (real)
Increment at which to generate images
sweep_range (sequence)
If type = direct comma separated values and sequences 1:10:3
clip_parts (boolean)
Clips part at location of sweep plane
Is based on view requested
reverse_clip_direction (boolean)
Reverses direction of clip part
vector_offset (real)
When using vector plane and slice plane, moves vector plane slightly
focal_parts (string)
Name of a part to zoom in on. The focal parts can be any of the names of the PART commands that exist in the .img file. There will be one for each view that is defined in the IMAGE command.
When no specific focal part is defined, the code fits the view and centers it to create the image. If a focal part is specified, the code zooms and centers on the focal part before generating the image.
zoom_factors (real)
Fit to focal part, then apply zoom factor.
If 1, then don’t zoom in. If less than 1, move the camera out, scaling the image.
active_flag (boolean)
Read and process the command or ignore it
