Hello Paul,
although I'm not an expert either, it seems to me you could improve your
code a lot by using numpy.mgrid
Below is a short example of what you could do
coordinates = numpy.mgrid[0:R, 0:R, 0:R]
X, Y, Z = coordinates[0].ravel(), coordinates[1].ravel(),coordinates[2].ravel() bits = self.bits.ravel()
distances = numpy.sqrt((X[bits==1]-centre[0])**2 +
(Y[bits==1]-centre[0])**2 + (Z[bits==1]-centre[0])**2)
There must be a way to do it without flattening the arrays, but I haven't
found it. Anyway, you can surely do what you want without a loop!
Cheers,
Emmanuelle
