I’m using Blender to make pretty pictures for astrophysicists. I’ve gone through the Modeling tutorial, and searched the FAQs, but can’t find the answers to some questions I’m stuck on.
What I need to create is a cosmic ray detector (already created; see http://astro.uchicago.edu/cosmus/projects/auger ) and a shower of particles falling on it. I can’t use the particle stuff referred to in the FAQs; here I have the x-y-z-time-etc positions of thousands of particles already (produced by one of the astrophysicists’ simulations) and need to visualize them. How do I do that?
