  1. Ability to annotate a point and display text normal to view with offset to that point.

    I wish to show where prob points are measured visually. My solution is to create a script with 3D text showing points annotated with prob number, however, this is only valid for one view and orientation. If it would dynamically adjust to my camera view then it would be much more useful,

  3. 360 equi-rectangular option for camera to view with cheap VR Glasses

    It would be fantastic to provide an option to output a 360 screenshot or video using equirectangular projection.. or even direct scrren output so it may be streamed to smartphone in VR glasses and give CAVE like experience to the masses.
    It is yet possible to do this by making 4 videos with 100deg FOV and stitch them with "3D Stitching" software post-processing giving output like :
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwKanld6MFE but right out of paraview would be fantastic

  4. Axes Grid Scaling

    The scale of the present Axes Grid is same for the all axes. So when I set Scale values on the Transforming property or Transform Filter, the values of grids become meaningless.

  8. abaqus

    I suggest to add the ability to read Abaqus files (.odb). After all it is a very popular code, and this way the post processing would also be possible on Linux/Mac.

  9. Add python shell in paraview configure

    Due to the screen DPI now getting smaller and smaller, the python shell embedded in paraview lack of appropriate font adjustment, hoping to join customizable features about python shell appearance.

  10. Support 64-bit node IDs

  11. Force or deactivate some Readers. Reuse the Paraview already running

    1) I always work with xmdf files and every time I have to choose the reader to use in the menu, can we deactivate or force the use of a specific reader in the command line?

    2) also if I run a second command line to run paraview (with a filename as argument) can we reuse the instance of paraview already running. (to compare results for example)

  12. SpacePilot (3DConnexion) support without manual build

    Today, SpacePilot is supported only if you build ParaView manually. My guess is that this excludes most users. It would be great if SpacePilot could be supported by default - or if that has drawbacks, then maybe as a plugin?

  13. Add an ability to view or probe the i, j, k indices in a structured grid

    When checking solver results or input files of type structured grid it is important to have the ability to view the node indices in the zone (i, j, k) an not just a running number (for instance in the spreadsheet view)

  14. 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.

  15. proper orthogonal decomposition analysis filter

    I think it is very easy for the developers to implement a proper orthogonal decomposition for unsteady flow with equal spaced timesteps using Snapshot POD algorithm described in chapter 3.2 of http://web.mit.edu/kwillcox/Public/Web/BTTanMS.pdf

    The algorithm is:
    0. get timestepvalues of interest as t_i, i=1..N
    1. load field P of two timesteps such as as P_i=P(t_i),P_j=P(t_j)
    2. calculate the correlation R_ij = inner_product(P_i,P_j)/N, the definition of inner product could be integration of P_i*P_j over the volume.
    3. get the eigen value lambda_i and corresponding vector eV_ii of matrix {R_ij}
    4. construct the i-th POD basis psi_i = sum(dot(eV_ij,P_j),j=1..N), usually, only the first…

  16. Save the original node and cell ID in NASTRAN and PATRAN readers and read all data

    For comparison to original file it might be beneficial to have the original node and cell ID`s preserved (those values exist in the file) and read all the existing data and not just the mesh

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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
