Using Avizo Software#

Learn about using Avizo 3D analysis software for scientific and industrial data on the Eagle System.


Avizo software is a powerful, multifaceted commercial software tool for visualizing, manipulating, and understanding scientific and industrial data. NREL licenses a limited number of Avizo tokens, allowing a small number of Avizo instances to be run lab-wide.

Running Remotely#

Avizo is installed and can be run remotely from the Eagle visualization node. First, launch a TurboVNC remote desktop. Then from a terminal in that remote desktop:

% module load avizo 
% vglrun avizo

Running Locally#

Avizo can also be run on a local desktop connected to the NREL network — the machine must be connected to the network to access the license server.

Install the Software#

First install the software:

Avizo 9.3 for Windows

Avizo 9.3 for Linux

Avizo 9.3 for Mac OS X
