Hi.

I am using paraview to slice up my hill and view in different direction. But i am unable to view the hill in full...
Can you advice me how to proceed?

cheers
Izna

If your hill is a separate patch, you can use the "Extract Block" filter to pull it out.

Extract only extract the patches. To see the flow patterns you will need to add glyphs/streamlines/etc. You can find many tutorials (including the tutorials in the OpenFOAM manual) about how to do this.

Right, so you are applying the glyph filter to the patch that has been extracted. What you want to do it apply it to the interior mesh, which is the root case. You can right click on the glyph filter and choose "Change Input", and the dialog should be pretty straightforward.

Very weird. Send me a copy of your case and I'll have a look.
