I want to read a fluent model (.cas + .dat) in Paraview. The model is obtained from Icepak but, since the solver used is fluent, I am usually able to import the files into Paraview.
However, when I import this model, Paraview stops responding immediately and the occupied RAM starts to grow disproportionately (for a 400 MB case, it comes to occupy as much as 17 GB of RAM). Opening the files in Fluent works correctly.
Has anyone had similar experiences? What check can I do on the file to detect the problem?
