After running a case using the LTSReactingParcelFoam lagrangian solver, I ran the foamToVTK command which generated a VTK file of the reacting cloud. I cannot figure out how to view the source code of this file as it is such an obscure file format. What I am trying to do is extract the xyz coordinates of each point in the reacting cloud. If this is possible in paraview, I have not figured out how to do it, and no program that I can find (other than installing the visualization toolkit) will open the file.
Any help would be appreciated!

Greetings Cay,

In ParaView, menu "File -> Save Data", it allows you to save the point or cell data, for example to a CSV file. This of course is assuming that the correct entry is selected in the "Pipeline Browser".


For reference for other forum readers, instructions on how to visualize these points in 3D is shown here: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Ma...gian_particles

Best regards,
Bruno
