Visualization in three dimensions is invaluable for understanding the nature of condensed and fluid systems, but it is not always easy. In nature it is hard to view sample interiors, but on computers it is possible. We describe and contrast two opposite approaches - “smoke” visualization for viewing interiors of liquid samples and interactive WebGL for solids and molecules. Both are extensions of earlier Technion Computational Physics group projects and complement and are interoperable with the recent SimPhoNy Fp7 project. They require only desktop hardware and software accessible to students. Examples and standalone instructions for both are presented, starting with sample creation and concluding with image galleries.
