This example shows simulation of a random walk in a 2D lattice computed in R, with the route displayed as an Origin line plot. The step number has been used a modifier for the line color.
In addition to support for importing MATLAB (.mat) files, Origin also provides a MATLAB Console tool for interacting with MATLAB installed to the same computer. You can transfer data between the two applications, and also issue MATLAB commands from the tool.
The MATLAB Console tool in Origin lets you connect with the MATLAB workspace to transfer data between the two applications. Transfer selected variables from MATLAB to Origin to create your final wp-content/uploadsation-quality graphs.
The Mathematica Link tool provides access to the Mathematica kernel from within Origin, for Mathematica installed to the same computer. The tool allows exchange of data, and to evaluate Mathematica expressions.
Orign provides a collection of subVIs to facilitate communication with LabVIEW. These subVIs can be used for operations such as opening communication with Origin, exchanging data, and issuing commands to Origin from LabVIEW.
The Origin installation wp-includess a collection of custom VIs for LabVIEW. The Vis are organized in three palettes, as shown in this image. The VIs provide various methods to connect, and send data and commands, to Origin from LabVIEW. The image also shows a LabVIEW VI that wp-includess several of the VIs from these palettes.
