Hi all;
I tried to run

Code:
foamToVTK -allPatches
to have all the patches of my geometry in a single file and avoid the need of opening every file single composing my geometry in paraview…

The problem is that I can only get cell data, I cannot get any point data.
(Don't know if these terms are correct but you can have a look at the attached image to understand what I'm saying.)

Any way to have the point data with this command?

Thank you!

In paraview, you can switch cell data to point data. I can't checked the exact name right now, but have a lokk in the "alphabetical list" (with calculator / elevation / etc... tools).

Thank you for your help.

Actually I think that my problem is that those data don't get exported, is not a matter of visualizing them in paraview…

Yes, "foamToVTK" exports only cell data as far as I know.

That's not true, if you look at the image attached you'll see what you get with foamToVTK without the flag -allPatches.
