Hi,

I created a cutting plane with the "Filter cut". Now I would like to display only one side (one half) of the geomerty.
Can someone please explain me how to do that?

Or is there any other possibility to see what happens inside a 3D geometry?

Thanks a lot,
Anja

Hi Anja,
Select original dataset and trun off the check
of "data" in display panel.
Other method is to use "clip" filter.

New versions of Paraview have the 'Save Data' option (under the right mouse button) which saves the currently selected item to a file.

You'll probably have to use some vtk code to read them in again since they will be xml.

Mattijs,
Thanks for the answer!

I am using the 2.2 version.
I just found the 'Save Data' option under menu File, but under right button no such option.

you meant the Latest version(2.4.2)?

You're right, it probably is only on the file menu

Let us know if/how you manage to read that data (back into OpenFOAM)

ParaView files: This is the default file format for ParaView. The data set created by this reader may be of any type supported by ParaView (polygonal, uniform rectilinear, nonuniform rectilinear, curvilinear, or unstructured). The file extension is .pvd. This format supports spatially partitioned and multi-block data. ParaView can write data files in this format. There are no modifiable parameters for reading ParaView files unless the file contains multiple time steps.

http://www.paraview.org/Wiki/ParaView:FAQ

let me see, install the newest version, and try to read the the .pvd file

Hello,

the cutting plane menu has the options: plane and sphere.
But I need a cutting cylinder surface.
How can I cut the domain with a cylinder?

Thanks a lot,
Nicoleta

Let's make all questions about cutting plane in one thread.

So, my question is:
how can I get view after cutting with coarse mesh cells (not plane)?
It have to be like this:

Thank.
