PyDPF: Contour Plots for Named Selections (Self-paced Learning Available)

Course Overview

This course is a concise workshop that showcases the process of creating contour plots for named selections with PyDPF. The sole requirement for harnessing PyDPF's capabilities is the result file generated from an Ansys Simulation (in formats like rst, rth, etc.). Notably, there is no need to have Ansys Mechanical open for postprocessing the results. 


  • Python 3 basics and Python IDE installed. 

  • Install the Python package PyDPF-Core (version 0.10.0) along with its optional plotting features using this command: 

    pip install ansys-dpf-core[plotting]==0.10.0 
  • Introduction to Ansys Data Processing Framework course is highly recommended.

Teaching Method

This is a self-paced course covering lectures, demonstrations and workshops.
