Problems with ASCII STL
 
Hi all,

I can not open an ascii stl file. Therefor I got the following error:
Code:

ERROR: In /home/shorty/software/ParaView-3.14.1-Source/VTK/IO/vtkSTLReader.cxx, line 446
vtkSTLReader (0x2959910): STLReader error reading file: /home/shorty/OpenFOAM/shorty-2.2.x/run/schichtspeicher/cad/outlet.stl Premature EOF while reading end solid.

If I export that STL as binary, it works without a problem.

I searched around and found that this problem already is known (http://www.paraview.org/pipermail/pa...il/024690.html)

Further more the error/problem should be solved but I do not know why its not working on my maschine. Its the first time that this is not working.

Does anyone have any hints?
Regards Tobi


PS:

a) Self-Build PV-3.14.1 is not able to load the ascii stl
b) binaries PV-3.14.1 ist not able to load the ascii stl
c) binaries PV-3.14.0 ist not able to load the ascii stl
d) Binaries PV-4.0 is working fine to load the ascii stl

Hi Tobi,

Continuing from the private message... Then it can only be one thing: the war of commas vs periods.

Because "1,000" is not the same as "1.000". Try running these two commands:
Code:

export LC_ALL=C
paraview

Then from that ParaView, open the STL in question. If should now work as intended.

Best regards,

Hi Bruno,

thanks for your replay.
The error exists!

My stl looks as every old one:
Code:

solid inlet
 facet normal -1.000000e+00  0.000000e+00  0.000000e+00
  outer loop
    vertex  4.210000e-01  0.000000e+00  6.300000e-02
    vertex  4.210000e-01  9.951403e-04  6.296186e-02
    vertex  4.210000e-01  5.685894e-04  6.207929e-02
  endloop
 endfacet

    vertex  4.210000e-01  4.011797e-03  6.140342e-02
  endloop
.

Hmmm... any other hints?

I added my STL file to check it out.

Tobi October 14, 2013 17:34

Solved.

I do not know it but the last line of my file is:
Code:

endsolid
Paraview need that one:
Code:

end solid
Thanks for the hint to check my file.

Code:

ERROR: In /home/shorty/software/ParaView-3.14.1-Source/VTK/IO/vtkSTLReader.cxx, line 446
vtkSTLReader (0x2d3f610): STLReader error reading file: /home/shorty/schichtspeicher/cad/stl/inlet.stl Premature EOF while reading end solid.

But the question is now, if sHM and other things can use that files now.
Hmmm ... Strange error.

Any hints are apreciated!
Regards Tobi


PS: I made a new Topic on MantisBT couse this error seems to be an old error again: http://paraview.org/Bug/view_all_bug...p?filter=88897

Hi all,

I compared the source code of PV-3.14.1 and PV-4.0.1 in the file: vtkSTLReader.cxx
because in the latest version its working.

I found the following two codes:

Paraview-3.14.1
Code:

      while ((strstr(line, "SOLID") == 0) && (strstr(line, "solid") == 0) && !done)
        {
        if (!fgets(line, 255, fp))
          {
          vtkErrorMacro ("STLReader error reading file: " << this->FileName
                        << " Premature EOF while reading end solid.");

          fclose(fp);
          return 0;
          }

        done = feof(fp);
        }

Paraview-4.0.1
Code:

while ((strstr(line, "SOLID") == 0) && (strstr(line, "solid") == 0) && !done)
        {
        if (!fgets(line, 255, fp))
          {
          // if fgets() returns an error, it may be due to the fact that the EOF
          // is reached (BUG #13101) hence we test again.

          done = feof(fp);
          if (!done)
            {
            vtkErrorMacro ("STLReader error reading file: " << this->FileName
              << " Premature EOF while reading end solid.");
            fclose(fp);
            return 0;
            }
          }
        done = feof(fp);
        }

As you can see in the latest version the problem is known and there is no function to return.

I will change the code and recompile it again.
After it I will tell you the result.


Regards Tobi

Hi all,

this problem can be solved if the code is be updated like in version 4.0.1 :)

Now its working fine :)

Hey Tobi,

Bruno told me you came across this problem a while ago. In case you, or anyone else, come across this problem again please refer to my post on the link below. I hope this can help.
