A case has been solved exactly, and post-processing is dealed with paraview.

Select internalMesh in Mesh Parts →select all Volume Fields →apply →read data successfully.

Select all Mesh Parts →select all Volume Fields →apply →read data abortively.

What's wrong with paraview and Mesh Parts?

Thanks in advance.

Greetings shuoxue,

This is not the first time someone asks about this. And the great thing is that the other person also had shown the images of when it works and when it doesn't. - It was this one: Visualization problem on ParaFoam - post #8

And the trick is simple: compare the two images and you'll see that in the first one you have near to middle top of the image, on the second row of controls, the text "Surface"; while on the second image, you have "Outline".

This happens because ParaView tries to avoid very large meshes to be represented when it starts, which can lead to seriously slow start-ups, specially when people might not want to see all of the data right away.

Best regards,
Bruno
