What's New in 2019.08

ResInsight 2019.08 is the latest version of ResInsight, the professional quality, open source 3D visualization, curve plotting and post-processing tool for Eclipse reservoir models. Version 2019.08 opens up a range of new and efficient workflows by adding Python script support in ResInsight.

Python scripting

Basic example on how to update views from Python

import rips
# Connect to ResInsight instance
resInsight = rips.Instance.find()

# Check if connection worked
if resInsight is not None:
    # Get a list of all cases
    cases = resInsight.project.cases()
    for case in cases:
        # Get a list of all views
        views = case.views()
        for view in views:
            # Set some parameters for the view
            view.setShowGridBox(not view.showGridBox())
            view.setBackgroundColor("#3388AA")            
            # Update the view in ResInsight
            view.update()

Launch ResInsight without user interface

It is now possible to launch ResInsight as a console application with no user interface. Some workflows might include servers with no graphics card, and the console mode enables use of ResInsight in this context.

Plotting improvements

  • Date and time can now be customized to exactly the format you prefer
  • To easily see the difference between history vectors and other vectors, the default style for history vector is symbols without lines
  • Curves in a plot will be hightlighted when left-clicking the curve
