Visualizing checkMesh results in Paraview
I'm working on a case where the grid is built using enGrid. It all seems fine, but when I run CheckMesh (OpenFOAM) it fails 4 checks, and writes the culprits to 4 different cellSets.
How do I display these in Paraview?
I tried copy the entire constant folder over, with the sets subfolder in it, but no luck.
Thanks for any help.
