This example allows you to load a 3D model (4 models are provided), place sensors on the model and map simulated sensor data to the model.
New way to visualize acquired and simulated data in your VIs: 3D sensor mapping. Using a basic Express VI, you can import a 3D CAD model, assign sensors, and map DAQ channel data directly onto the model. This example illustrates how to use this feature.
Requirements: LabVIEW 2012 (or compatible).
Steps to Implement or Execute Code:
Run the VI. By default the VI will use automatically simulated data
Press the LED to toggle between automatically generated values and input values from the sliders on the left of the 3D picture control
Navigate to the block diagram and double click on the Sensor Mapping Express VI to open its dialog window.
Left click anywhere in the window and drag the cursor to rotate the model.
Hold the Shift key, left click, and drag the cursor to zoom in and out.
Hold the Ctrl key, left click and drag to move the model to a new position in the window.
