  1. 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.

    • 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.

          • 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

            • Conical Slices

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

              • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • Display timeseries dates in animation instead of time steps

                      I would like to change animation time steps into data dates: I want to change time annotation into date annotation.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • 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!

                                    • Catch invalid printf-formatting strings instead of having the application crash

                                      Specifically, in the "Edit Color Legend Parameters" dialog, entering "%4.3s" as the "Range Label Format" and pressing "Apply" makes the application crash hard.

                                      • Add a query information filter

                                        This filter should accept a query with :
                                        - an operator : min / max / mean .... etc.
                                        - a celldata or pointdata name
                                        - an optional selection
                                        - a format descriptor

                                        The filter should then add a 3d text with the result of the query and an optional arrow to point out the location of the query (if the query is min/max).

                                        It should be possible to place automaticaslly the 3d text object where it 's not disturbing.

                                        It should be possible to define formats with multiple fields.

                                        For example :
                                        - query : max Temp
                                        - format…

                                        • 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.
