  2. Add B-Spline/ NURBS visualization capability.

    Direct visualization of NURBS --no discretization necessary!. NURBS is already a standard in computer graphics and the future of FEA (isogeometric analysis).

  3. create the ability to automatically label contour lines when creating contour plots

    I'm trying to place engine exhuasts on a car and need to identify regions of certain pressure. Solid colours are too blurred to define precisely such regions. Contour plots are great for this but need automatic labelling as an option

  4. 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.

  5. Abort filters and rendering without having to quit paraview (Bug 3925)

    Some filters can take very long to finish. Also large datasets might take forever to render. It would be great if a user could press a stop button to stop these processes without having to kill paraview.

  6. 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.

  7. improve data format documentation

    Data format documentation is available through ONE document only, the slighlty outdated article "File Formats for VTK Version 4.2". I spent money on the paraview guide, but also nothing there. Paraview is a great program, but the documentation situation is absurd! Please help!!

  8. Export to 3D PDF

    It would be great to be able to save a session to a 3D pdf so that any model can be viewed by almost anyone without the need for any other viewers.

  9. Keyboard shortcuts

    It would be nice to have the ability to associate all kinds of Paraview actions with keyboard shortcuts. Currently, I see shortcuts only for basic actions like Open File etc.

  10. . 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.

  11. Change the order of sources in the pipeline

    When using Paraview to compare multiple datasets, the order in which they appear in the pipeline is the order in which they are loaded. Thus, if a dataset needs to be unloaded and replaced with another, the new dataset is placed at the end of the pipeline rather than where the dataset it replaces was. This can lead to confusion when working with multiple similar datasets, as the order of appearance in the pipeline may not correspond to the logical order of the datasets (be it because of variations in the datasets themselves or in the way that they are…

  12. Enable caching of (static) meshes for transient data

    Following on from:

    http://markmail.org/message/b3ro3hvuqqenxyfg

    - for transient cases employing static meshes, provide a mechanism to cache the mesh so that it is not necessary to rebuild the complete visualization pipeline

  13. Improve the Tecplot reader both for Structured and Unstructured grids

    The Tecplot reader is very usefull, but it should be further improved because many Tecplot files (written by the user according to Tecplot format specifications or written by Tecplot itself !) still cannot be read !

    I am usually using Structured grid, and the Tecplot reader works fine for most of my ASCII files, except for those that are written by Tecplot itself and that contain the STRANDID and SOLUTIONTIME tokens that are currently unsupported. I have to remove these unsupported tokens from all ZONE headers before reading with Paraview. May I suggest to ignore those unsupported tokens with just…

  14. Include a 'Save State & Data' option.

    It would be very useful if an option was available so that the user could save his/her current state, commands and data (including any new variables) inclusive within a single file. This would provide a unified, compressed dataset that is independent of platform being used to visualise it, not only making it portable but the user would not have to worry about the paths to the dataset and it could act as an emergency backup for the data. As far as I am aware, both Tecplot (*lpk) and Ensight have this feature available.

  16. Add StarCCM+ loader

    I'd like to doing postprocess data files from StarCCM+ simulation, but now, with current version, it's possible only with ensight format export from StarCCM+ but I cannot display properly data (ex. Velocity Contours in block mode and not in smooth mode...)

  17. Glyphs: Scale only the arrow length instead of the whole glyph size

    The glyph filter has the nice property which allows to scale the glyph. However, for all arrow glyphs, a better way of scaling would be to scale only the length of the arrow by a quantity instead of the whole arrow (shaft and tip thickness). This simply gives a much clearer overview if there are regions with big and small arrows in one domain.

  19. Ellipsoids source/glyphs

    It would be nice to have the ability to draw ellipsoids or specify a major/minor axis at each point and glyph an ellipse at each point using those axes.

    There is a feature request for an ellipsoid source here:
