Hello I was wondering if any one has advice on importing vtk files while mainting block array values? I have a vtk file containing an unstrucutred grid (I attached a sample) which I would like to remesh in cubit (with a pave scheme so that I dont have any holes in the mesh as my current example has at the top in the center). I also need to preserve the existing cell values in the grid (ideally they would just be assigned to which cubit cell is the nearest after remeshing). I saw this post on saving a vtk file as an exodus file and importing from that (Importing Quad Mesh from *.obj or *.ply).
As suggested I tried generating an exodus file and importing it using the setting shown below:
This produced the correct correct geometery and I was able to sucesfully remesh (shown below) but I am missing the array block array values. I had hoped to use these values to parition the resulting mesh (i.e. my block array is valued at 1,2 or 3 and I wanted to use these to make unique, i.e. every node which had a value of one should be part of block 1, every node that had a value of block 2 should be block 2 etc.). Is there a good way to preserve this information
To summarize the steps I used looked like the following:
test.vtk–>exported as test.exo file using paraview → imported using cubit (but missing the block array vlues I want to use to define blocks), remeshed → saved as a .cub file
Thank You, I greatly appreciate any assistance. I have attached my original vtk file, the exodus file I made and a paraview .cub file obtained after remeshing.
