Dear foamers,

I have some difficulties installing openFoam on my mac, and since I use clusters to do my simulations, I don't really need openFoam on it.

So I would like to use my mac only to see the results of the simulations using paraView.

But is-it permitted to do so? I tried to type the command paraFoam on the terminal, but it doesn't recognize it:

Code:
wifi-student1-3833:150x50 Andreas$ paraFoam
-bash: paraFoam: command not found
Thank you very much for your help,
Regards,
Andreas

Greetings Andreas,

I hope you don't mind, but I've written the following idea so many times now, that I'll just quote myself :

Code:
touch case.foam
Then open the "case.foam" file in ParaView. You then have a choice to load either the reconstructed or parallel case.
Best regards,
Bruno

Thank you Wyldckat!

I have another question, let's say I created this .foam file, is it possible to open it from the shell on paraview?

What I have to do now is to open the paraview program, and then click on "open folder" etc etc…

What I would like to do is to type something like "open file.foam" on the shell and then paraview would automatically open with the file.foam case.

Thank you again for your help, it has been very usefull!
Regards,
Andreas

PROBLEM SOLVED: open file.foam actually works fine :-)
