While post-processing the channelOodles tutorial case in OpenFOAM 1.3, when I select a time step in ParaView and click on Accept, I get the following error message:

--> FOAM FATAL ERROR : Not implemented

From function void CyclicPointPatchField<patchfield,>::evaluate()
in file /home/dm2/henry/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.3/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/CyclicPointPatchFie ld.C at line 187.

FOAM aborting

The case can be postprocessed without problems using OpenFoam 1.2.

How can I solve the problem?

Thanks in advance,

can you report this as a bug?
can you report this as a bug?

Two workarounds (not tested):
- use foamToVTK with -noPointValues
- change the cyclic patchFields temporarily to be e.g. fixedValue (and change the cyclicPolyPatch type in the polyMesh/boundary file accordingly)

Thanks. I'll try your suggestions immediatly.

Unfortunately I've just tried to install OpenFOAM 1.3 on our Rocks cluster and it's not running due to incompatibilities in versions.

I tried to create a compatibility environment as explained by Novell in but it doesn't work
I hope to find a solution soon.

Best regards,

Indeed, I also have the same bug when using
paraFOAM on the channelOoles case and dowloading
the field at a time step.

Any solution instead of having to change all the
cyclic ?
