Hi all,

if you use sHM for adding layer cells you get a Set of "addedCells". If I use sHM on one core thats not a problem to visualize them with the command
Code:
foamToVTK -cellSet addedCells
but if I have a decomposed mesh I am out of ideas how to get the cells.

Well okay I can make VTK for every processor but thats to many work
Is there a possibility to use a command or sth. like that?

Hi Tobi,

You can run foamToVTK in parallel as well for exporting said cellSet. It should create symbolic links in the VTK to each processor folder.

The other possibility is to use ParaView's internal foam reader and open the parallel case directly:
Code:
paraFoam -builtin
I believe there is an option for also displaying sets...

Best regards,
Bruno
