Seeking Assistance with ParaView Display Issue

Hello everyone,

I’m encountering a perplexing issue with ParaView version 5.11.2, where a file I’m attempting to open is displayed as empty within the application. Interestingly, when I access the same file through an online website, it’s displayed clearly without any problems(Free Online Tool to View 3D VTP Files Online - ImageToStl).

I’ve downloaded ParaView 5.11.2 directly from the official website and am puzzled by this issue. Any insights or suggestions on what might be causing the file to display as empty in ParaView would be greatly appreciated.

I just started learning paraiew. Is there any way to visualize these points inside it? Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Your file contains only points, which ParaView doesnt show by default, switch to point gaussian representation:

Thank you for your kind suggestion! I will switch to the point Gaussian representation as advised.
