Hi all,
I'm new in paraview and i'm trying to plot my meshfree simulation using paraview, but i'm confused how to set up the input data. There is an example i found somewhere in internet as in the following code
<VTKFile type="UnstructuredGrid" version="0.1" byte_order="LittleEndian">
   <Piece NumberOfPoints="3" NumberOfCells="0">
<DataArray name="Position" type="Float32" NumberOfComponents="3" format="ascii">
       0 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 1
     <PointData  Vectors="vector">
<DataArray type="Float32" Name="Velocity" NumberOfComponents="3" format="ascii">
       4 4 4 4 0 0 2 2 -2
   <DataArray type="Float32" Name="Diameter" format="ascii">
       0.1 0.5 1
   <DataArray type="Float32" Name="Temperature" format="ascii">
       273 300 350
       <DataArray type="Int32" Name="connectivity" format="ascii">
       <DataArray type="Int32" Name="offsets" format="ascii">
       <DataArray type="UInt8" Name="types" format="ascii">
However I'm not sure it is correct one or not. is there someone can verify it is the right format? do i need to fill the Cell type=1 (VTK_VERTEX) ? is there any suggestion or better example for me?

thanks a lot
