Is there any visualizer for parMetis (mpmetis), which can visualize FEM mesh grids after partitioning?

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, I use gmsh link $\endgroup$ – Krzysztof Bzowski Sep 21 '12 at 5:48

We used to use GMV back in the day. If you label each partition as though it was a constant material property, you can have GMV display and "explode" your mesh on that property. It works pretty well for modest partitions.

  • $\begingroup$ GMV is no longer available for free and is being commercialized. Is there any free alternative? $\endgroup$ – Krzysztof Bzowski Sep 20 '12 at 15:10
  • $\begingroup$ Ah, too bad! I only checked that it still existed, not what it took to get a copy. :) You have my apologies. I don't know of any free tools for this off the top of my head. Some googling didn't turn up anything useful either. $\endgroup$ – Bill Barth Sep 21 '12 at 0:53
  • $\begingroup$ Don't Visit or Paraview allow "exploding" views? We color plots based on partition all the time, I just never tried to explode a view. $\endgroup$ – Wolfgang Bangerth Sep 21 '12 at 2:41
