Write GBCD Triangles File

Group (Subgroup)

IO (Output)

Description

This Filter writes relevant information about the Grain Boundary Character Distribution (GBCD) on an existing set of triangles. The information written includes the inward and outward Euler angles, normals, and areas for each triangle. The file format was originally defined by Prof. Greg Rohrer (CMU).

Example Output ##

# Triangles Produced from DREAM3D version 5.2
# Column 1-3:    right hand average orientation (phi1, PHI, phi2 in RADIANS)
# Column 4-6:    left hand average orientation (phi1, PHI, phi2 in RADIANS)
# Column 7-9:    triangle normal
# Column 8:      surface area
