Crostino is on a distinguished road
Hello everyone,

I'm currently searching for a solution to visualize FDS simulation results in Paraview.

I'm aware that there is a method involving the use of the PLOT3D option in the FDS input file. This method generates .xyz files and .q files that can be read by Paraview. However, I'm encountering difficulties when using multiple processes (around 200 meshes and processors). It becomes impractical as it generates 200 separate .xyz files, which is quite challenging to manage
Additionally, it creates an excessive number of files, and the HPC system I'm using has a limit of 50k files per folder.

I would greatly appreciate any assistance or tips on how to achieve Paraview visualization for a multiprocess FDS simulation.

Thank you
