faces#

A quick way to generate an image with 2 opposing faces set to True, which is used throughout PoreSpy to indicate inlets and outlets

import porespy as ps
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np
import inspect
[03:28:19] ERROR    PARDISO solver not installed, run `pip install pypardiso`. Otherwise,          _workspace.py:56
                    simulations will be slow. Apple M chips not supported.                                         

The arguments and default values of the function can be found as follows:

inspect.signature(ps.generators.faces)
<Signature (shape, inlet: int = None, outlet: int = None)>

shape#

This would be the same shape as the actual image under study. Let’s say we have an image of blobs:

im = ps.generators.blobs(shape=[10, 10, 10])
faces = ps.generators.faces(shape=im.shape, inlet=0, outlet=0)

ax = plt.figure().add_subplot(projection='3d')
ax.voxels(faces, edgecolor='k', linewidth=0.25);

inlet and outlet#

These indicate which axis the True values should be placed, with inlets placed at the start of the axis, and outlets placed at the end:

faces = ps.generators.faces(shape=im.shape, inlet=2, outlet=0)

ax = plt.figure().add_subplot(projection='3d')
ax.voxels(faces, edgecolor='k', linewidth=0.25);
