How to export high resolution images in APDL

      Hi,

      I am trying to export images in APDL.

      So far I found two solutions to do so:

      Using the /IMAGE command:

      This way I can specify the path where the image is stored but not the resolution (/GFILE, 2400 does not seem to have an impact)


      Using /SHOW,PNG and plotting to png format:

      This way I can specify the resolution by /GFILE but I can't change the save path.


      Is there a way to achieve both?

      I think I found a solution to my problem:
      The /SHOW command has an option to specify a filename.
      So the solution is something like
      /SHOW,FILENAME,PNG

      My solution did not actually work.
      The png files produced by /SHOW,FILENAME,PNG seem to be corrupted somehow.
      So if anybody has another solution please share it with me.

      Can you show us all of the commands used to generate the PNG file. Often reverting back to the terminal and redoing the plot will help here; or the Close option in /SHOW (purging the graphics buffer). So let's say you wanted an element plot:
      EPLOT
      /SHOW,MyElementPlot,png
      eplot
      /show,close
      /show,term
      /rep
      If doing the above can you then open MeElementPlot.png ?

      The complete set of commands are mandatory to plot the images. The same can be used in batch runs too..

      1. For plotting elements and models
      2. For plotting results (nodal solution plots)

       

      For plotting elements and model:
      /SHOW,PNG,,0
      PNGR,COMP,1,-1  
      PNGR,ORIENT,HORIZ   
      PNGR,COLOR,2
      PNGR,TMOD,1 
      /GFILE,800, 
      !*  
      /CMAP,_TEMPCMAP_,CMP,,SAVE  
      /RGB,INDEX,100,100,100,0
      /RGB,INDEX,0,0,0,15 
      /REPLOT 
      /CMAP,_TEMPCMAP_,CMP
      /DELETE,_TEMPCMAP_,CMP  
      /SHOW,CLOSE 
      /DEVICE,VECTOR,0
      !*  

       

      For Plotting nodal results:
      /RGB,INDEX,100,100,100, 0   
      /RGB,INDEX, 80, 80, 80,13   
      /RGB,INDEX, 60, 60, 60,14   
      /RGB,INDEX, 0, 0, 0,15  
      /SHOW,PNG,,0
      PNGR,COMP,1,-1  
      PNGR,ORIENT,HORIZ   
      PNGR,COLOR,2
      PNGR,TMOD,1 
      /GFILE,800, 
      !*  
      /REPLOT 
      /SHOW,CLOSE 
      /DEVICE,VECTOR,0
      !*  

       

      Have a Great day?
