Dear
I am new in OpenFoam. I have used the DPMFoam to simulate the particles. But in paraview, the particles are shown using points. I want to display the particles in their real size(using the particle diameter data).
I used to display the particles in Tecplot using the sphere in real size. But now the problem is that Tecplot cannot read the particle data in openfoam. Has anyone encountered this problem before? Any solutions, suggestions will be very helpful.

Thanks !

Use the Glyph filter in Paraview.
