Problem to display mesh in Paraview
2 Attachment(s)
Hi everyone,

thanks in advance for any kinds of help.

Here's my small pb: when i want to visualize my mesh using Paraview, it links automatically in triangular mode the vertices (2D) whereas i would prefer staggered grid.

It s ok on the border of the domain (see picture) but not if i create a slice inside the domain. I can't find the appropriate option. The mesh is cartesian and uniform.

No answer for my message in the bottle ?

try to use the filter 'extract cells by region' instead of 'slice' to create your slice.

Hi Daniela,

This could be alsmot awesome if i could extract only the plane i chose instead of half a volume (check the pict). I tried to create it directly from a slice but it didn't work out. If you have any idea ...

Thanks a lot in advance

In addition to what Daniela suggested, on the 'extract cell by region' panel, select both 'extract on intersected' and 'extract intersected'.

Great, thanks a lot Ertan ! I chose last time one of those 2 options independently from the other one without success!

Thanks Daniela too
