Paraview/VTK are unable to read nfaced type elements in EnSight Gold files
This issue was created automatically from an original Mantis Issue. Further discussion may take place here.
EnSight Gold Files containing "nfaced" (convex polyhedron) type elements (available since EnSight 7.4) are not handled by the current VTK EnSight Gold readers, crashing the readers.
A patch (and test data) is proposed at the given URL, reaading nfaced elements as vtkConvexPointSets.
(the modified versions are based on the ParaView CVS head as of March 3 2006, that is: vtkEnSightGoldBinaryReader.cxx/1.64/ vtkEnSightGoldReader.cxx/1.56/ vtkEnSightGoldReader.h/1.20/ vtkEnSightReader.cxx/1.61/ vtkEnSightReader.h/1.27/)
