Hello Christophe,

I would like to visualize results defined at nodes with "glyphs" located at the nodes. More precisely, I would like to use results defined between "$NodeData" and "$EndNodeData" statements to represent for example:
  a.. One force applied on one node of the structure (a vector). 
  b.. One temperature imposed at one node of the structure (a scalar value that I would like to view as a colored sphere).
So far, when I define scalar results with "$NodeData" and "$EndNodeData" statements, I can only visualize color maps on the corresponding elements. (But then, all the nodes of the element must have a value.) 

What I would like to do is to visualize these results when only a few nodes in the mesh have a value (scalar or vectorial). Going through the menus, I have not been able to find a way to visualize that type of results.

Would it be possible to do that ?

Sincerely yours,
