Hi, I created a cutting pla

I created a cutting plane with the "Filter cut". Now I would like to display only one side (one half) of the geomerty.
Can someone please explain me how to do that?

Or is there any other possibility to see what happens inside a 3D geometry?

Thanks a lot,

New versions of Paraview have
New versions of Paraview have the 'Save Data' option (under the right mouse button) which saves the currently selected item to a file.

You'll probably have to use some vtk code to read them in again since they will be xml.

ParaView files: This is the default file format for ParaView. The data set created by this reader may be of any type supported by ParaView (polygonal, uniform rectilinear, nonuniform rectilinear, curvilinear, or unstructured). The file extension is .pvd. This format supports spatially partitioned and multi-block data. ParaView can write data files in this format. There are no modifiable parameters for reading ParaView files unless the file contains multiple time steps.

let me see, install the newest version, and try to read the the .pvd file

How can I cut the domain with a cylinder?

Let's make all questions about cutting plane in one thread.

So, my question is:
how can I get view after cutting with coarse mesh cells (not plane)?
It have to be like this:
