Examples using the tecplottools module
--------------------------------------
Load a 3d dataset, apply an equations file, interpolate the data onto an
arbitrary geometry, and save the data from the new zone:
```python
import re
import tecplot
import swmfpy.tecplottools as tpt
## Load the data
dataset = tecplot.data.load_tecplot(
'3d__mhd_1_n00000100.plt'
)
## Apply equations
tpt.apply_equations('gse_to_ephio.eqn')
## Select the variables to interpolate from the 3D simulation data onto a
## regular rectangular prissm with equally-spaced points
variables_to_interpolate = list(dataset.variables(re.compile('B.*')))
new_zone = tpt.interpolate_zone_to_geometry(
dataset,
dataset.zone(0),
geometry='rectprism',
variables=variables_to_interpolate,
verbose=True,
center=[0.0, 0.0, 0.0],
halfwidths=[2.0, 2.0, 2.0],
npoints=[5, 5, 5]
)
## Select the variables to save in the hdf5 format, which is compatible with
## common scientific programs such as MATLAB.
variables_to_save = list(dataset.variables(re.compile('X.*|Y.*|Z.*|B.*')))
tpt.write_zone(
tecplot_dataset=dataset,
tecplot_zone=new_zone,
write_as='hdf5',
