Hi all,

is it possible to read a PointScalarField in Paraview?
If yes how can I achieve that?

The File is motionScale and I want to know what that file shows me (visual).
Best regards,
Tobias Holzmann

Hi Tobias,

yes, it is possible. Just copy your pointScalarField from constant to e.g. 0. In paraview/paraFoam should then appear motionScale in Point Fields.

Hope this helps,
