Dear All

It seems that the current Foam reader for paraview doesn't support the new surface mesh format(surfMesh), isn't it?

Though surfaceMeshExport utility can be used to get a format ready for paraview, stl for instance. If the surfMesh change with time, how can i visualize the surfMesh at different time point? Can paraview read different file at different time point? it seems not.

Any suggestions?

Best regards, Junwei

In the longer term it would indeed be useful to have a separate surfMesh reader plugin for paraview.
Indeed it shouldn't be as difficult to write as the current reader plugin since it is a functional subset (2D data only, no lagrangian, no polyhedral decomposition), but probably needs time/funding ...
