  1. Extract selection + Preserve only connected topology

    Add to this filter option to select only connected elements (linked by common nodes) when mesh consists of several components in one dataset.

        • Import Azore CFD solver data

          The Azore CFD package has an export to VTK for ParaView use, but ParaView does not have an import directly from Azore. Would be useful to connect the two more completely.

          • . frd plugin for calculix

            Calculix has a own post processing tool called Calculix graphics window(cgx) .The colour plot is not look good if postprocessing possible in calculix means that will be very good.

            • create surface mass flow rate for all time steps

              filter for a surface or plane calculates the mass flow rate over time steps and we can plot over time

              • Create a reader for the Fieldview format (.fvuns).

                The .fvuns format is commonly used for creating animations in FLUENT. The reason is that you can export selected planes/surfaces (even with dynamic mesh), meaning that you will have lower file than when exporting the entire data set. For long transient animations, this format is therefor highly useful.

                  • Conical Slices

                    I would like to do a slice but using a cone. Is there a way to extract information using different geometries?

                    • Extract the index from selected points, in the order they are selected and extract plane parameters from slice

                      Hi, I would like to extract the index of the points selected in the order I selected them. But when I choose extract selection and save the csv file, I get them ordered from small to big. Also I would like to save the point coordiantes and his normal when I choose slice. I see them in the box in the left, but there is no option to save them in a csv file. Thanks

                      • Develop an Ansys reader

                        I can not read my Ansys Structural case data in ParaView. I think it would be a great idea post-process Ansys Structural in Paraview.

                        • The solution for easy file import from SolidWorks to ParaView.

                          I'd like to suggest some solution for easy import files from SolidWorks. I tried to do it, but there is only wrl file theoretically compatible. In practice, my SW 2014 and ParaView 5.2 dosn't interact. There is an ERROR: In C:\bbd\df0abce0\source-paraview\VTK\Common\ExecutionModel\vtkDemandDrivenPipeline.cxx, line 710
                          vtkCompositeDataPipeline (00000204B4E93B60): Input port 0 of algorithm vtkAppendPolyData(00000204B5040810) has 0 connections but is not optional.

                          • openfoam

                            The standard release of Paraview can read binary double precision OpenFOAM cases. It would be very useful if it could read binary and ascii and single and double precision natively. If it could autodetect the format and precision when reading the data in, this would also be extremely useful.

                              • Load Materials on surfaces

                                Now that OSPRay rendering seems to turn out really well, it would be really a plus if it could be added also the option to active material rendering (like metal, glass, plastic, etc.) on surfaces, instead of simple solid colors.

                                • Add capability to define motion to a probe

                                  It would be useful for simulations with moving meshes (mesh and geometry changes at each time step) to be able to define a probe with an initial location and then a defined displacement, so it would be possible to plot-over-time the properties of a specific point in the mesh that is in motion.

                                        • Add real vector graphics

                                          With paraview 5 the export to vector graphic formats most often results in a rasterized image (http://public.kitware.com/pipermail/paraview/2016-February/036314.html). This is huge drawback of the new version. Please bring the old true svg, eps, pdf export back!
