Elmerpost input file does not exist

Post processing utility for Elmer

Elmerpost input file does not exist

Postby SeHe » 20 Dec 2017, 02:17

I have freshly installed Elmer on win10 and went through the tutorial. Now as i got to the step of post-processing i couldnt use the ElmerPost nor the ElmerVTK option as for ElmerPost the input file didnt exist and with ElmerVTK i just got a white screen and i didnt have an .pg file to open.
I have seen a threat from 2011 but the there mentioned .dll file is in its place.

Does anyone has an idea how to fix this?

If you want to use postprocessing tools that use ElmerPost format specify the suffix of the "Post File" to be .ep.

However, currently we recommend to use Paraview (or ViSit) and the .vtu format. It is the most versatile format, and is available as binary and parallel as well. Paraview has excellent feature set.
