Default Determine cell and boundary face centroids of HDF5 Fluent files in Python using h5py

blyatman is on a distinguished road

I have a bunch of data files which I would like to post-process in Python. To do this, I use the h5py library to import the data files.

Does anyone know how to determine the centroids of the cells and boundary faces from the mesh, case, or data files?

Using the HDF5 viewer, I found that the mesh and case files contains nodal coordinates under "/meshes/1/nodes/coords/3404", but I could not find any information which indicates which cell/face corresponds to which collection of nodes.
