Thanks, it works.

But now I have another problem:

I run the OpenFoam tutorials on a Linux system and use Paraview with Windows. I can mount the Linux directory to read the tutorial data from Windows. But i can't open the .foam files, i don't find them ...It seems that the visualization with paraview on windows is different than using it under Linux...

Has anyone know smthg about that ?

It's possible to generate .foam files (which are called 'dummy files' in the user guide).
It's necessary when you need to open the OF case manually with ParaView. When launching the case with Linux ParaView, the OF script paraFoam generates such a file, "gathering" the datas from the different files and sub-directories. But this file isn't available to open so we need to create one.

If you have the same problem, then I may have an answer now. You have to generate .VTK files that are readable by paraView using the command "foamToVTK" in the case directory.

Thanks for your very fast answer!
I tried this, but there is still a problem, i can see the vtk file in the "pipeline browser" but i have an error when i want to apply:

--------------------------
ERROR: In C:\tmp\OpenFOAM-1.5\3rdparty\ParaView-3.4.0\VTK\IO\vtkUnstructuredGridReader.cxx, line 350 vtkUnstructuredGridReader (0x1f50d738): Unrecognized keyword: o>€$<w:o>‚< ::o>„h<œ:o>†)<™z:o>ˆs<–$:o>Š“[<’„t:o>Œi<Ž:o>v<Š™:o>‘@<†w:o>”z<‚ Š:o>u
---------------------------


but maybe that is a very basic problem since i just installed Openfoam

Bon je vais rpondre en Anglais, par politesse pour ceux qui veulent lire le post !

Your methodi is the same I'm using, and it seems to be working properly .

So the problem is solved, isn't it ?

Bon courage

after the blockmesh command, type foamtovtk -ascii, into the same folder. Then it will create a vtk folder with .vtk files inside, that you will be able to open with paraview.

does it works?

hi Antoin,

thanks for your reply, it is working fine for me.

what i tried is, though i'm using windows OpenFoam, after giving blockmesh, by right clicking on foamToVTK and in customize write as
"foamToVTK -ascii" and close. then, in foamToVTK right click and run start custom.

that's it.

thanks & regards,
padhu
