Hello Forum,

Im wondering if its possible to visualize a simulation, which I computed and prepared in Star CCM+, with Paraview? And if yes, how exactly? Im more like a newbie

The thing is, I can use both CFD programmes - Star CCM+ and OpenFOAM as well, but Im used to Paraview

I know that there are similar questions like this, but I couldnt find the answer so far.

Thanks in advance.
Best regards
macRC

Hi Marc,

In order to visualize STAR CCM simulations in Paraview, you simply have to go to file/export and select Ensight Gold files (*.case) as your output format.

Now depending on your case size, you may still experience an issue while importing the case in Paraview. From my understanding, STAR output is just fine but Paraview is limited in the block size it can import. This is a common issue that I found very little documentation on. The good news is, this is easily circumvented by cutting down your biggest region(s) in STAR using the built in STAR tools (that's right, a region in STAR is a block in Paraview) and retry the export command in STAR.

Let me know if you need further assistance

Hello,


i would like to do the same. Post process star ccm+ data with paraview. As recommended i export my file from star ccm as a .case file. Afterwards I open the file with paraview. In paraview its possible to view the grid, but no velocity information is available.


Where is my mistake?


Thank you very much,
Philipp

In Star-ccm+
Step 1: click file->export
Step 2: In the new save window, there is a box on the right with a number of tabs (~5). You must click on each tab and highlight the desired export variables. You will see them being tallied in the field below this box.
Step 3: Make sure the drop-down box says 'export mesh and solution data'.
Step 4: Select 'Ensight Gold file (*.case)' as the file type
Step 5: save the export

In Paraview
Step 1: Open the *.case file
Step 2: Before clicking the green 'apply' button, you must select the desired import variables from the 'Cell Arrays' and/or 'Point Arrays' boxes.
Step 3: Click the green 'apply' button'
Step 4: Select the desired import variable from the drop-down box located in the second toolbar in Paraview

I just had to figure out this process. I hope this helps you, as I saw you had inquired in 2010 and again in 2018.
