Dear all,

Is anybody able to visualise either the mesh and/or the results of the new molecular dynamics solvers (gnemdFoam and mdEquilibrationFoam) in Paraview?

In case you can visualise them, could you please provide some guidelines?

Jose Santos,

I had similar problems using paraview. My guess is that the length scales of the molecular dynamics solvers are smaller than some threshold which effectively disables "auto-scale" in paraview. It essentially paraview assumes that all the coordinates are zero.

If you play around with the various scale parameters in the display and properties panels you should be able to view the objects.

David,

Thank you for your reply. In fact, after playing around with scale parameter, I could finally see the mesh and the molecules. It was necessary a scale value of 100 million!

Regards,
Jose Santos
