Rendering Fluent Data in Paraview
 
hi all

I am testing Paraview 3.2.1 as an alternativ postprocessor for fluent. First results look promising. But when trying to render wall surfaces from fluent (unstructured tetra grid), i get surfaces that looks incomplete or distored. I am sure it is a rendering issue therefore i played around with that options in PV without success so far.

Are there any tips out there?

Thanks Burk

How did you export from Fluent to paraview?

I exported Fluent dat and cas data to ensight gold format. Then I read the ensigt format in paraview which works fine.

In the mean time I did the same import in paraview 2.6 there the rendering problem did not occur. I copied the default light settings to PV3.2. Now the surface rendering looks fine.

cheers B

Sounds good. Are boundary zones preserved by Ensight import to paraview?

Yes they are. In PV 2.6 the even the zone names are preserved. In PV 3.* the zone names are substiuted by PV internal numbering. this is a disadvantage for PV 3* to PV 2.6
