PyTecplot Quick Start

The goal of this Webinar is to get you up and running with PyTecplot, Tecplot 360’s Python API, in 30 minutes or less. We will use the case of the Onera M6 Wing and export images of slices at multiple locations. This simple case is used for illustration, but we will also discuss more complicated scenarios.

The Webinar will cover:

  • PyTecplot Requirements
  • Installation
  • Recording and Playback
  • Modifying Recorded Python
  • Connected vs. Batch Mode
  • Best Practices
  • GitHub Repository

If you are not a Tecplot 360 customer with current TecPLUS maintenance, you can download a free trial of Tecplot 360 to use during the Webinar.

How to Analyze Your Time-Dependent Data 6 Times Faster

Let’s face it, analyzing large amounts of transient data can take forever. Animating images to a movie can take an entire weekend to complete. Why can’t Tecplot just do it for me, and do it faster?

This Webinar will show you how the power of Python can take advantage of multi-process parallelism. Using Tecplot 360’s Python API, PyTecplot, you can get your results up to six times faster.

Webinar Agenda:

  • The Problem – Post-processing time-dependent data can take a long time and consume large amounts of RAM.
  • The Solution – Reduce memory usage and take advantage of multi-processing – both will drastically speed up transient post-processing.
  • The Results – Get your results up to six times faster!
