visualize utils.box with paraview

Asked by Christian Jakob on 2012-03-22

I use utils.box to create the walls in my model.
I am also using vtkrecorder to visualize the calculation.
A file ...-facets.vtu is created, but I can not visualize it with paraview.
It seems, that there is no geometry information stored.

Does anyone know how to visualize boxes in paraview?

Problem solved while using facets instead of boxes.

Boxes are not exporting by VTKRecorder.
The feature should be implemented, if somebody needs it.

Is this feature easy to implement? I would need now as I cannot display boxes with Paraview ATM.

Thanks for advice, Chiara

Please, open a "wishlist-bug" for that.
