Shape plot section diameter too thin

Shape plot section diameter too thin

Post by a.negrean » Fri Jul 05, 2019 6:11 pm

Hi,
I am using NEURON -- VERSION 7.5 master (4d65a2c+) 2017-08-17

I have a cable 800 um x 1 um and trying to visualize the voltage across it in the shape plot view using the colour map. I am using the GUI from the python binding. My trouble is that the cable ends up to be too thin to see clearly the colour map. Changing the physical size of the cable is not an option. Is there a way to display the cable using a thicker line segment? Sure this is not drawn to scale, but like so it would be easier to see the colour map.
Thank you!

See the documentation of the Shape class--in particular, that class's len_scale() method.
