Anyone know if Fluent data can be read by the post processor 'ParaView'.

Had a bit of an explore and it don't seem to want to work. Any experience out there?

Yes, it can be done. Export to Ensight binary format, read the resulting *.encas file into Paraview with the "Little-endian" option.

One thing I did have to do in case others are reading.

Rename the *.encas file to *.case.

Anyway this worked for me!

The .encas --> .cas rename is not strictly necessary. You can force Paraview to list all the files in the directory (otherwise it only lists the files with extensions familiar to it) and then select the Ensight files reader when it asks which reader to use. You can also use the ASCII format Ensight files, but you need to strip the leading spaces from all lines containing character strings.

I tried to open .cas and .dat file from Fluent in Paraview, but I'm not able to see the results in the right way. The 3D model is opened and I can see velocities, for example. But I can't see the right countour velocity map.

So I tried to export datas from Fluent in EnSight format. But Paraview gives this error:
ERROR: In ..\..\..\src\Servers\Filters\vtkEnSightGoldBinaryR eader2.cxx, line 94 vtkEnSightGoldBinaryReader2 (046867F0): stat failed.

What can I do?

Hi Claudio,

any luck with your problem (I know you posted it about 5 years ago!)? I am having a similar one.

Thanks in advance!
