Contour plot (Isosurface) in Paraview
 
Hi all,

I'm using Paraview to visualise some Fluent simulationso (exported via the Ensight data format). When I use the contour tool though, even with the display just set to "Surface", I get the edges of my mesh drawn in (see screenshot below). Does anyone know how I can stop this from happening and just have smooth contours drawn?

Thanks.

Hmm, If you are sure you are not doing anything wrong, then this might be a bug, you can post it in ParaView's mailing list.

Hi David,

I just tried to open a .case file and I did not have any problems. Can you provide a sample of your data?

Regards,
Mikko

Hi Mikko,

Thanks for the interest. I've solve the problem by applying the filter "extract block" to the .case data, in paraview, and selecting the fluid domain on it. From that filter I can apply both the slice and the countour filters and surfaces appears smooth.

Without using that filter I slices and countours appear together with the mesh.

Cheers,

David
