Technical plotting in 3-D. (Software Exchange).
Capability: The technical plotting software for engineers and scientists known as Tecplot 9.2 includes 3-D visualization capabilities to create on-screen graphics and presentation-quality output. The update includes a new general text loader to provide a flexible interface for getting data into the plotting software. With the new text loader, users can explore and create plots directly from their existing data formats. The loader lets users scan data for titles and variables, set filters, and preview the processed data before importing. By saving a configuration file, users can apply a format specific to their data the next time they need to load a file.
