I have managed to export from Fluent to Paraview v3.2.1 , using the ensight case format and I can view my results ok,

but can anybody tell whether I can access the zone information from fluent i.e walls and inlets etc of my model. is this possible in Paraview? or has something gone wrong in the translation?

I want to display contours on a complex 3d surface.

cheers

Nick

Use the filter "Extract Datasets". Here the 3.* versions of Paraview are inferior to the later 2.* versions like 2.6, which kept the names of the surfaces.

Not that I know of. But rolling back to 2.6 is not really a big hardship, it is pretty capable, and in some respects (like the named zones) easier to use.

Hi, I was trying to do the same, namely export fluent files to paraview using the ensight format, but i failed, simply because the files exported by fluent have the extension .encas .geo .vel .scl, while the files read by paraview should have extensions .case or .sos i tryed to read these files anyway but it didn't work. can you tell me how should i proceed? thanks a lot, Federico

just rename your *.encas file to *.case , paraview will read this file (this file is just a reference for all the others) and automatically read in the scalars and geometry. make sure you set paraview to the little endian option.
