AToM3 Layout Pictures

Car Assembly Model (imported as a generic foramlism)

The following is a car assembly model created in MatLab simulink. The model was imported into AToM3 and then layout was performed. The model contains over 100 nodes and edges. Note that Tree-like, Force-Transfer, and QOCA are not shown since they cannot provide a decent layout for this type of graph.



Manual layout of the model inside MatLab

Layered drawing of the model inside AToM3. Note: Minimum width layering and aggressive crossing reduction was used.

Spring-embedder drawing of the model inside AToM3

Circle drawing of the model inside AToM3

Digital Watch in Class Diagram formalism

Tree-like and then Spring layout was used. The resulting symmetrical look is as appealing as it was unexpected (Tree-like was used by accident).

Circle then Spring then FTA layout (generally dependable for a readable yet very compact layout)

DChartsV3 meta-model in Class Diagram formalism

Note: Layered layout resulted in very poor area usage with this model (not shown)

Also: FTA is used to remove overlaps that tend to occur when doing layout on large odd size vertices.
