Hello,

I'm working with OpenFOAM on Windows Subsystem for Linux and therefore I have to use the separately installed ParaView from windows.

When I use Extract Block filter none of the fields get passed on to the extracted block, I can only display it as solid color. It worked fine when I opened the case with paraFoam.

Should I be doing the extract block or something else to get to my cellZone?
The case is reconstructed and write format is ascii.

Thanks!

I'm guessing the native reader does not support cellZones. You can make a cellSet using topoSet, then use foamToVTK -cellSet XXX to create a VTK file which you can view with ParaView native.

Thanks for the reply.
What does "supports multiblock datasets" mean in the following description?

https://kitware.github.io/paraview-d...OAMReader.html

Anything to do with cell zones?

Hey Nejc did you figure this out? I am trying to find what is meat in by "support multiblock too".

well i still don't know exactly what that means but if you want to load and view separate cellzones, yes, i figured it out:
Read zones and partial results

hope that helps...
