Hello Everyone,

I ran simplefoam while completing one of the tutorials. Now, how do i post process the results in paraview?

I'm assuming the solution is in the latest time step directory but none of the files can be opened in paraview.

Have I missed something?

Thank your for the help.

bigphil will become famous soon enoughbigphil will become famous soon enough

try 'foamToVTK'

This creates a directory called 'VTK' and you can open the '*.vtk' within in paraview.
