Hi all,

I am looking for a solution for around one hour now, but couldn't find anything. I want to calculate the volume of each cell of my mesh.

Somehow I can not do it in paraview, the mesh quality filter does not recognise my cell shapes. Actually they are hexahedra, but as result I get only zeros (for the can-tutorial of paraview it works fine).

I don't want to work on the source code for this issue, since I guess there must be a more convenient a.k.a. faster way. So I looked up the Utilities, but couldn't find anything there.

Any suggestions how to solve this issue?

If I would have started working on the source code from the very beginning probably I would have solved it by now...

Thanks and regards,
