john zhu is on a distinguished road
I tried foamToVTK and foamToVTK -poly(wiki said it can export the mesh without decomposing cells)
but this way only export the VTK model which every block and toposet has been divided to different file.

And I tried export to x3d too,but I can't open the x3d file in windows with Glyph Filter.(I used vmrl to open it showed all black)

my openFoam version is 3.0.x OpenFOAM-in-Box-16.10
paraview 5.0.1
system ubuntu 16.04 in VMware
solver chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam

my final purpose is to make a heating animation. It need to show data from any angle in realtime so I can't use screenshot.

anybody have some suggestions?
thanks! (<ゝω)☆~
