Display objects

Display objects are responsible for generating the visual representation of data that leaves OVITO's modification pipeline. They are automatically created by OVITO and are listed in the "Display" section of the pipeline editor.

The following types of display objects exist:

Display objectDescription
BondsDisplays the bonds between particles.
ParticlesDisplays a set of particles.
Simulation cellDisplays the simulation box.
Surface meshDisplays the smooth polygonal mesh, which is produced by the Construct Surface Mesh modifier.
Triangle meshDisplays a triangle mesh, loaded from a VTK file, for example.
VectorsDisplays vectors associated with particles, e.g. displacement vectors.
Trajectory linesDisplays the particle trajectory lines, which are created with the Create trajectory lines utility.
DislocationsDisplays the dislocation lines extracted by the Dislocation analysis modifier.
