Woo has a built-in 3d view made for detailed inspection of simulations and seeing what matters. It supportes displacement & rotation scaling, selecting & inspecting objects and many other things.
Fotorealistic rendering of simulation using the POV-Ray raytracer:
These are force chains during the cylindrical triaxial test, with scaled (magnified) nodal displacements:
With configurable coloring, length and export to VTK if needed:
While Woo itself concentrates on being a superb simulation tool, the possibility to export to Paraview allows to create beautiful renderings of the scene, which is always useful for presenting the results to the management.
