How to run python script to plot sth WITHOUT reconstructPar
 
Hi all,

I have a large case (mesh > 20M) calculated using 200+ cores. So I need to use python script to extract some contours, profiles, etc. I have figured out how to do it using .py script. But I have a problem that every time I run the .py script, I need to run reconstructPar first and it is time-consuming. Is there a way to do it WITHOUT reconstruct. e.g., use sth like -builtin option for paraFoam.

Thanks in advanced!

With "contours, profiles" you mean sample lines and surfaces? AFAIK sample works in parallel. So just run it on your 200+ cores
