I suggest you ...

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.

        This would be very beneficial for my daily work and would be a good extension for the use of ParaView.

        due to the fact that the abaqus post processor (CAE Viewer) is very far behind, this would open a huge crowd of abaqus users to use paraview. (E.g. you have to define node or element sets before(!!) solve to work with these sets in the post processor ! )
        An odb reader would enable at least 10 persons in our company to completely work with paraview. Also with a high potential for more users (our 20 ANSYS users and more in external companies, which work for us)
        They would all appreciate to work with it !

        Also agree. Would like to use some of the paraview tools to analyze odb files. Really surprised that odb files are still not supported while ANSYS files are.

        Since you guys have worked with both Abaqus and paraview, Do you know if I have a 3d model in paraview, how can I export it as a volume to Abaqus? I appreciate any help .
