PostProcessing class#

The PostProcessing class supports postprocessing directly from the MAPDL live instance. If you want to postprocess MAPDL result files outside of PyMAPDL, you can use one of these packages:

  • PyDPF-Core : Postprocessing using the Data Processing Framework (DPF). DPF-Core provides more complex and more powerful postprocessing APIs.

  • PyDPF-Post : Streamlined and simplified DPF postprocessing. PyDPF-Post is a higher-level package that uses PyDPF-Core.

  • PyMAPDL Reader: Legacy result file reader. PyMAPDL Reader supports result files for MAPDL 14.5 and later.
