# Postprocessing¶

The pyFormex rendering machine can be used to render any scalar value on a given geomatry. Thus pyFormex can also be used as a postprocessor for numerical simulation codes such as Finite Element Analysis (FEA) or Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).

## Distance¶

This image renders the distance from all points of the geometry to a single fixed point. The imagewas taken in an alpha version of pyFormex 0.6.1.

## FE results¶

In this image from pyFormex 0.8.1 (alpha) multiple viewports are used to render some results from FEA simulations. Also shown is the postprocessing user dialog.
