The visualization of magnetic flux lines is one of the most effective ways to intuitively grasp a magnetic field. The depiction of continuous and smooth magnetic flux lines according to the magnetic field is of paramount importance. Thus, it is important to adequately allocate the distribution of magnetic flux lines in the analyzed space. We have already proposed two methods of determining the allocation of magnetic flux lines in 3-D space. However, both methods exhibited a long computation

For solving this problem, in this paper, we propose a new improved method for correct allocation of magnetic flux lines in 3-D space with modest computational cost. The main advantages of this method are shorter computation time, correct allocation of the magnetic flux lines, and especially short computation time for visualization of magnetic flux lines when changes in the number of depicted flux lines is requested.
