1. An electronic apparatus comprising:
a display generation unit configured to generate a display area in a user interface, the display area being configured to display a 3-D model of a patient's face and a 3-D model of a patient interface device fitted to the 3-D model of the patient's face;
a transparency adjustment unit configured to generate a transparency adjustment tool in the user interface, the transparency adjustment tool being operable to adjust the transparency of a subset of components of the 3-D model of the patient interface device displayed in the display area of the user interface; and
an interaction map unit configured to generate an interaction map tool in the user interface and to calculate an interaction map between the patient's face and the patient interface device indicating levels of contact pressures between the patient's face and the patient interface device, wherein the interaction map tool is operable to toggle display of the interaction map in the user interface, and wherein the interaction map unit is configured to adjust transparency values of at least a portion or the 3-D model to one or more predetermined values in response to displaying the interaction map in the user interface.
