Proplem with OF tutorial vizualization
I'm trying to vizualize this case

want to see it like this

but floatingObject disappears when I use Clip tool to see what inside cube.

Here how it's looks with contour (alpha=0.5) - floatingObject nor visible :confused:

is part of mesh, which include walls.

Have any ideas how to vizualize floatingObject?

Hi Avdeev,

AFAIK, it's simple:
  1. On the first floatingObject.OpenFOAM, select to load only the internal mesh.
  2. Clip this mesh.
  3. Then open a second time the same file: menu File -> Open -> floatingObject.OpenFOAM
  4. On this second file, choose only the floating mesh patch.
  5. Select to show it as surface et voilą, it is done :)
Attached is an example.

Best regards,
