Contour plot: celldata2pointdata
 
Hi to everyone, I have to do some contours plot from a file with Paraview using the python scripting.
The following script shows you the contents of my file:

from paraview.simple import *
reader = ExodusIIReader(FileName = "/home/.. file.case")
SliceFile = Slice(reader)
DataSliceFile = paraview.servermanager.Fetch(SliceFile)
print(DataSliceFile)

If I try to do the contour plot using:
contourFilter = Contour(reader)
contourFilter.PointData[:]

Nothings happens because I haven't point data..
How could I transform the Arrays inside my cell data in point data?
I read about the celldata2pointdata filter but I don't know how to use it..
Can you help me?

Greetings dmaz,

ParaView has a feature for recording most of the operations made, such as opening files, applying filters and changing the camera view. The feature is the Python Trace, accessible from the menu Tools:
  • Start Trace
  • Stop Trace
With these you can easily create scripts that perform most of the operations you want. An article briefly explaining this feature can be found here: http://www.kitware.com/media/html/PythonTrace.html

The tracing feature should help you figure out how to do many of the configurations your looking for, as it will show you how the options used in the GUI translate to Python code.

After you've played around with this feature, along with trying to modify the resulting scripts, have a look into the threads already existing on this forum: http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/paraview/

Best regards,
Bruno
