FreeCAD and ParaView

Postby HarryvL » Mon Jun 24, 2019 1:56 pm

I rely heavily on ParaView in my posts and recent tutorial (https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/Analysi ... e_with_FEM) and wonder if that is seen as a help or hindrens (to spreading the FreeCAD gospel). I would be happy to do a small ParaView tutorial with some practical tips and tricks, but that may annoy FreeCAD purists even more?! I would be interested to get your opinion on this matter.

Since ATM paraview has much much much more features than FreeCAD FEM I personally see no problem in such a tutorial on FEM wiki pages of FreeCAD. IMHO it is the other way around. This would even more attrac users to use FreeCAD FEM.

Personally I really like to see this happen, since my knowledge of paraview is rather small.

I would appreciate such a tutorial as well.

Add me to the +ParaView vote.
It already has most of what FreeCAD FEM post-processing wants to be.
It's open source and cross-platform. We all need to build the toolbox.
FreeCAD can't be everything, to everyone, all the time.....yet ;)

All Tutorials are welcome!

I also use paraview for postprocessing and there are a huge options that I never use it.

Sorry for my late reply. :-( I am not that experienced in Paraview because I mostly use Mathematica for nearly the same stuff. To reduce the dependency on closed-source software, at least for me, an FEA centered post-processing tutorial for Paraview would be very useful! So, please go ahead :D :D :D :mrgreen:
