Add cylinder option to the current plane/sphere/box options available when doing a slice29 votes
Since virtually all computers have at least 2, rather 4 or even more cores, it would be great to be able to utilize them.
For now, I haven't found a way to to postprocess OpenFOAM data or StarCD data in parallel on one machine and gain a speed-up. (infact, setup via "mpirun -np2 pvserver" decreased performance to 0.5x). I have read that the "not-legacy" VTK reader is parallel, so could there be at least a converter from old-VTK to new VTK? (if the reader is the problem)21 votes
Paraview operates/implements a client-server paradigm. This suggests that it may be possible for an external (e.g. C++ application) to communicate with a running instance of Paraview, by sending it commands (e.g. open legacy VTK file) via the port attached to the server. Such a feature would be ideal for:
- debugging programs that output VTK data.
- automatically loading or unloading data to Paraview e.g. at the end of a smilation12 votes
We are working on this feature as well as the ability to linking the ParaView engine with the simulation (aka co-processing or in-situ processing)
- Don't see your idea?
