ANSYS FLUENT Data -> Ensight or direct Fluent Data?


I have a problem getting my FLUENT data into paraview. I tried different methods but nothing works.

Reading the .cas file from FLUENT directly doesn’t work. After a few minutes loading paraview crashes without an error.

I also tried encas gold (EnSight Case Gold in Fluent) with every combination.

  • Node ASCII
  • Node Binary
  • Cell Center ASCII
  • Cell Center Binary

If I load the data in ParaView (EnSight Reader) I can see my data under “Cell Arrays” or “Point Arrays”, but if I press the “Apply” button, I always get this error:

ERROR: In C:\glr\builds\paraview\paraview-ci\build\superbuild\paraview\src\VTK\IO\EnSight\vtkEnSightGoldBinaryReader.cxx, line 348

The model still loads but I can’t see the e.g. the velocity, I only see “vtkBlockColors” and I can’t change it.

So, do I need an additional software package for the errors? I’m using ParaView 5.9.0, but I also tried it on other versions. I’m using Windows Server 2022 Standard.

Kind Regards,
