Issue Details

I would like to be able to model sensors on a 3D model I made in a CAD software in LabVIEW , where depending on the value the sensor is reading, a different color is displayed directly on the model. Is there something like this available in LabVIEW?


Yes, this is something that can be done using LabVIEW. Specifically, there is the Sensor Mapping Express VI. Here you can input a 3D model, place the location of the sensors directly on the model and adjust the colors displayed based on the values read by the sensors. 

For an example of this Express VI, follow 3D Sensor Mapping Example
