Hi guys

I need help, please.

I have done some simulations with Ansys Fluent with my case. Now, I want to visualize results with Paraview 3.14.1 .

First of all, I have exported simulation results from Fluent to Encase Gold case, generating some files such as
- simulation1.encas
- simulation1.geo
- simulation1.scl1/2/3/etc
- simulation1.vel

To import results in Paraview I have changed the name of the first file, from
- simulation1.encas

And it works! Now I'm viewing my results in Paraview.

Then, I click on "filter -> extract block" and I've extract all the wall to visualize my geometry.

It works

Now, my problem. I want to create streamlines, but, how can I do this?
If I use OpenFoam data I can use "filter -> stream tracer with custom source", and than, select
- input -> simulation results
- source -> inlets

But, if I try to do the same with Fluent data, I can not select anything in "source"

I think I need to extract inlet surfaces to assign them to "source" of the streamlines.

Any suggestion?

Thank you in advance
