Hello Scott
I have the same problem like Jignesh- I have several .plt files, some of them are in the 'boundaryMesh' directory and the rest are probably due to the field results. According to your suggestions, I first uploaded the mesh files in Tecplot using File>Load data (thats what I have in the file menu) and then I uploaded the result .plt files. But its not showing anything. Could you or Jignesh please tell me step by step procedures to upoload and check the results (.plt files) in Tecplot? Your quick reply will be highly appreciated.
Thanks

Hi all,

I think my post bets fit here.

I am using openFoam version 2.4.0 I have done a simulation of porous media using porousSimpleFoam.

I want to import my results to TechPlot. But after running paraview when i using foamToTechplot it is giving error command not found.

How do i import my results to Techplot for further post processing.

Best
Ajay

hey Ajay
two things might happen; either the command u used is wrong (it should be foamToTecplot360), or this conversion is not installed in your system since it is not from openFoam rather a third party. If the above mentioned command is still not found, then try to install foamToTecplot360 conversion. It should work.

Hi Farhan,

Thanks for your quick reply.

Yeah i tried foamtoTechplot360 command. But it gives error command not found.

I have also installed techplot but may be its not installed properly. I will try to reinstall it.

Hi bruno,

I have installed the Tecplot360 software but again same error is coming command not found when i type foamToTecplot360

It doesn't make the .plt file it should make which the data loader will then take.

Also when i open Tecplot and go to data loader there is no openFoam loader in it.

What should i do??

Hi all.

I have installled the Tecplot software on linux. But when i am creating the library to make .plt files which have to be read by tecplot. It gives following error.

By looking at the error i t looks that there is some proxy error. BUt i am not able to sought out.

I have followed the steps given on this link
https://github.com/wyldckat/localFoamToTecplot360

Don't know what to do... Any suggestions

I guess the 2009 version of the tecio library is outdated. This link works
Code:
wget -P download http://download.tecplot.com/tecio/2013/tecio2013.tar
and for OpenFoam you need to run wmakeLnInclude on the tecsrc directory
Code:
wmakeLnInclude tecsrc
and, additionally, you need to copy the tecio library into OpenFoam library directory
Code:
cp $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR/tecio/libtecio.a $FOAM_EXT_LIBBIN
Have a look at this thread for details
