I'm trying to visualize the propagation of heat in a discrete sphere surface. The sphere is hollow, only the voxels of the boundary have value.
Visualization in matlab using isosurface shows correct color over the surface.
I would like to show iso-contours over this visualization but this is difficult in matlab. Searching for alternatives to visualize the data I've found python + numpy + mayavi2 and immediately fell in love with them.
Playing with maiavi I can obtain my desired kind of plots with parametric surfaces but I cannot reproduce the same results with my volumetric, discrete sphere. The following code,
lines = [0.1, 0.3, 0.5, 0.7, 1, 1.5, 1.8, 2.3, 2.8, 3.0, 3.1] mlab.contour3d(heatmap,contours=lines)
only shows uniform color sphere. Enabling contours or not, does not change the result. No iso-heat lines nor even color over the surface
Anyone knows the correct approach to show the iso-heat contours?
