Hello Markus,
what worked for me was to change the version of blender (from 2.63a back to 2.62 I think), but I couldn't find a "true" solution to this problem.

All the best!

Hi,

so you still use an old version?

Can you track the error back?

https://projects.blender.org/scm/vie...s&pathrev=4362

or git

https://github.com/ldo/blender-addon.../import_x3d.py

I just downloaded the latest release 2.68a and have the same problem.

I will try to send a bug report or consult the blender forum.

Markus

Hello Markus,
yes, I'm still using 2.63a. Just tried importing an x3d file with 2.63a and the current 2.68. The 63a works fine (no black), the 68 gives the ugly black stuff. Did you have any luck with the blender community on this?

Here's sadly another problem (at least with 2.63): As soon as the x3d-file exceed a size limit of about 800 MB, the import won't work anymore (for a sinle file). If I split the 800 Mb file into two 400mb x3d files, it works....

always a lot do work around with free software
Cheers and good luck

cfdnewbie - I know this is old, but do you still have information on the scripts? Do you have a new link? I have an account on blender.org, but am still unable to see the thread.

Thanks!

Just wanted to add my contribution to the discussion. Many companies are moving towards that direction for marketing reasons.

Here's a cool video:

Wow, all of exacorp's video's are pretty stunning! Do you work with them lovecraft22?

I guess I could put a plug in here for a few videos I worked on. In some of our lab's biological fluid simulations, where the time history of the particles is important (blood flow & olfaction), I thought it would be interesting to animate the camera to follow a streamline:

I think that good visualization is not only useful for marketing, but also, if done correctly, for helping your audience understand the fluid mechanics.

By the way, have you guys seen the work from Oak Ridge:

or TotalSim?:

Let's keep this discussion going - it's fun to see the latest and greatest in visualization!

Ciao!

I recently made a small presentation to get a group of local openFoam users started with rendering CFD result using Blender. It comes with result files (in VTK format) that can be used in ParaView.

Presentation: http://www.slideshare.net/JuliendeCh...-using-blender

Files: https://s3.amazonaws.com/cfdresultsp...ng+Blender.zip

Feedback welcome.

This is fantastic! Can anyone post the python code for to an accessible location? Blender forums says I'm not allowed to read the post unfortunately...

Cheers
