I'm looking to render my mesh generated in gmsh with ParaView, but I'm having trouble finding any utilities that can convert a gmsh file to a ParaView readable file or a plugin for ParaView that allows gmsh *.msh files to be loaded in.

I'm using ParaView version 4.1.0 and gmsh version 2.8.3 if that makes any difference.

If anyone knows of any good tools and can point me in their direction, I would really appreciate it, thanks!

Dave

I tried running gmshToFoam and it generates its files, but none of them are a format that I can open in ParaView.

I figured out a solution. I didn't realize you could save multiple output filetypes from gmsh. I saved it as a vtk which opened in ParaView.
