plot out the volume of each cell in a mesh using paraview
 
Dear All,

Is it possible to plot out the volume of each cell in the whole computational domain using paraview 3.98.1? Because when I present my results from Openfoam, I need to also show the gird resolutions for my mesh. Please give me some suggestions about how to do this. I check the filters but did not find a good way to do that. Thank you in advance!

best
H

Yes. You can use the Python Calculator for this. Set the "Array Association" to "Cell Data" and the expression to "volume(inputs[0])". Right now, this works only with hexs and tets. I will fix it soon.
