Command to control the graphic output. This command is intended for batch-mode. See also ”Viewing” for the menu controlled functions.
• ”cl” The command line is shown in the graphic's window.
• ”fill” Element-faces are filled
• ”line” Elements are displayed as fireframes
• ”point” Element-edges are displayed as points with a pixel-width of 'value'
• ”edge” triggers the display of the model edges with a pixel-width of 'value'
• ”elem” triggers the display of the element edges. They are deselected with the additional parameter ”off”.
• ”surf” and ”volu” are used to display the structure either only by it's outer skin (surf) or by drawing all elements (volu).
• ”front” and ”back” define which side of the structure should be drawn. Either the side which faces the user or the back-side. If the back-side is displayed then internal structures are visible.
• ”vec” triggers the vector mode. All vector-entities like displacements are displayed with arrows pointing in the direction of the vector and with a length proportional to the value of the vector. See ”Toggle Vector-Plot” for a detailed description of the equivalent menu-function.
• ”disp” will show the deformed structure based on a formerly selected displacement dataset (no entity must be selected). See ”Toggle Add-Displacement” for a detailed description of the equivalent menu-function.
• ”bg” Without second parameter toggles the background colour. The second parameter 'w' forces white while the parameter 'k' forces black as background colour.
• ”sh” Shaded results are shown. Switched off with ”off”.
• ”ill” Illuminale the backface of the elements. Switched off with ”off”.
• ”rul” triggers the display of a ruler bar. Switched off with ”off”. A string containing the unit can be given: “view rul mm”.
