Can Paraview visualize .prt files as would be exported from CAD programs such as SolidWorks or NX? I realize there are many different readers available when I initially open a .prt file in ParaView but none appear to work. Thank you in advance.
ParaView is meant for postprocessing of engineering simulations (mainly FEA and CFD). If you just want to open CAD models, it will be better to use a different app. I would recommend FreeCAD but you will have to convert the files to universal format (STEP is the bets one).
