Hi All,

When I finish a parallel computation, for example 8 coes, when I would like to see the results with paraview, now I always first use the command reconstruct to combine the data and then the paraview to open them. I am wondering if there is a method to see the results using paraview without combing the data first. Because if the data are very large then the combining is very time consuming and comsume lots of space.

Thank you very much.

Select "Decomposed Case" from Case Type, instead of Reconstructed Case"
