ACE Twin Model Figure

I've run an ACE model with twin data using the oneACEvc.R script from H. Maes. The full ACE model was the best fitting. I want to create a figure for this model that includes my parameter estimates. Is there a way to do so?

Use umx instead?


If the model is specified in mxPath() format, it is easy to derive a diagram. If it is specified in matrices (which Hermine's script uses) then diagrams have to be prepared manually. However, the umx package generates mxPath models, so umxACEv is likely what you are looking for... The graphs it generates are generally not very pretty, but they can be saved as (using plot) .dot files, which can be then read by several graphics packages and manipulated therein for publication quality.
