    There are few applications on the net which could translate part of Calculix results, but none are anywhere near perfect. May be the following application under development has the potential.

    However, it may take few years before we could use a post-processor that is user friendly like paraview for Calculix

    1. launch ccx as usual: ccx namefiel.inp
    But, note: namefile.inp must have the *OUTPUT request written in old (pre 2.6.1 release) format that is *EL FILE, *NODE FILE (otherwise 2. does not work).

    2. launch candystore (http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/candystore/index.php?title=Main_Page).
    open namefile.frd
    Candystore is supposed to show the results too, but I didn't manage to get this function work so far (strange, isn't it?). In any case:
    Export .VTK (note that the exported file must have the .vtu extension, for example namefile_VKT.vtu)

    3. open namefile_VKT.vtu in Paraviewer.
