Correct way to import LS-DYNA output files to ParaView?


I am trying to plot stresses obtained from the LS-DYNA analysis in ParaView.

When I open the d3plot output in ParaView, the load (time) steps are incorrectly read, and I cannot plot any output variables.

As I am new to ParaView, I was wondering if there is a “correct” way or format to load LS-DYNA output files in ParaView. I looked for the topic in the web and this forum but did not find anything particular.

Thank you.

Hello @nareshsubedi and welcome to this forum.

What is the extension of your file?
Could you please share your data?

Hi @Francois_Mazen,

Thank you for the reply. Turns out, the issue was related to my LS-DYNA output not ParaView. I was requesting output for incorrect number integration points for the solid elements in my LS-DYNA model.

With the correction, I am able to import the output files in ParaView without any issues.

Hey, are you able to extract LSDYNA strain results in paraview without any problem?
