Share everywhere with VTFx files and Ceetron Viewers


The Export component adds easy sharing of simulation results using the Ceetron VTFx format. With a few lines of code, you can export exactly what you have on the screen to a compact file that can be shown on almost any platform. You can upload the VTFx file to Ceetron Cloud and share and view it directly in the web browser on any device. You can analyze it further using CEETRON Envision Analyzer Desktop or CEETRON Envision Analyzer cloud.

The CEETRON Envision Demo Viewer is available on Windows, Linux and Mac.


Currently the Export component only works with the UnstructGrid component.

Export to VTFx

Add the following code to export exactly what you have on the screen to a compact VTFx.

cee::exp::ExportVTFx exporter(cee::exp::ExportVTFx::DISPLAY_MODEL_ONLY, model);

// Add properties from the view and the model
    cee::PtrRef<cee::PropertySetCollection> propColl = new cee::PropertySetCollection;
    cee::PtrRef<cee::ImageResources> resources = new cee::ImageResources;
    cee::exp::PropertyBuilderVTFx propBuilder(propColl.get(), resources.get());

// Optionally, add a thumbnail image
    PtrRef<cee::vis::Image> thumbNailImg = new cee::Image;
    view->renderToImage(640, 480, thumbNailImg.get());

exporter.setVendorNameAndApplication("MyCompany", "MyApp");


This file can then be viewed in the Free Ceetron Viewer on Windows, Linux and MacOSX, as well as on Ceetron Cloud.
