I most most post-processor can realize what you what. I use TECPLOT and ENSIGHT. You just need to form data in a format that is compatible with the post-processors. For commercial CFD softwares, at least I know that Fluent can export to the format used in TECPLOT.

You can check out Visual 3p, one of the ICEM CFD products.

The results obtained using the mentionned soft could probably be output in "cgns" format, that then could be re-read.

CGNS aims to provide a "standard" output format for CFD, see web site http://www.cgns.org/ for more info. They also provide a list of software that can use the format.

Have fun. Julien

I've really no idea: the point is that OpenDX is free, whereas (as far as I can tell) all the other offerings in the replies are commercial. Obviously, commercial offerings will have custom-made interfaces for some codes and for the open source project like dx you may need to put some effort in (and contribute?).

Currently, I am not aware of a publicly available interface for STAR-CD but it's worth getting in touch with CD-adapco and the dx developer forum for help.
