File format for Paraview
 
Hi,

I have written a 1 D convection diffusion equation solution solver using c++. (As in Peric). right now, I use PlotDrop and I have got output plots right.Now I wanna use paraView for the plotting as I have to use it anyway for my project work and I may as well get familiar with it. What is the format i should write my output file? I have data as X,Y .(2 arrays)

Can anybody give any pointers please?:o

P.S: I have googled and got a link to CSVreader . But no details on how to write the file.

Hi

You can use vtk data format and use it in paraview

You can google for vtk file formats or go trough the full documentation. However, this helped me a lot:

Hi,

take a look at
http://vtk.org/gitweb?p=VTK.git;a=bl...sv_to_graph.py
http://www.vtk.org/doc/release/5.8/html/a00520.html "vtkDelimitedTextReader"

http://vtk.org/gitweb?p=VTK.git;a=bl...hon/tables2.py

So you can do a little scripting in paraview with that vtkDelimitedTextReader and get the same thing done as in pur vtk

Thank you
 
Thank you for the reply.Right now I am writing plotScript.gp files from my code and loading them into gnuplot to create simple 2D views in the development stage.
I will do nice Post processing with paraview once I validate the code.
Thanks again :-):)
