Hi all,


After running checkMesh, I get some faceSets relating to poor quality cells:

Code:
  <<Writing 273 non-orthogonal faces to set nonOrthoFaces
 ***Error in face pyramids: 1 faces are incorrectly oriented.
  <<Writing 1 faces with incorrect orientation to set wrongOrientedFaces
 ***Max skewness = 14.9371, 32 highly skew faces detected which may impair the quality of the results
  <<Writing 32 skew faces to set skewFaces
    Coupled point location match (average 0) OK.
I convert these to VTK format for viewing with paraview as follows:

Code:
foamJob -p -s foamToVTK -faceSet wrongOrientedFaces
The problem, is that the VTK folder inside the case directory appears as follows:

Code:
 processor14_meshQualityFaces_0.vtk -> ../processor14/VTK/meshQualityFaces/meshQualityFaces_0.vtk
 processor2_meshQualityFaces_0.vtk -> ../processor2/VTK/meshQualityFaces/meshQualityFaces_0.vtk

 processor15_meshQualityFaces_0.vtk -> ../processor15/VTK/meshQualityFaces/meshQualityFaces_0.vtk
I have no idea how to read in these parallel VTK files, other than read each one individually, which is a huge pain!! Any tips on this?
