Type vs. mk in paraview legend


Is the parameter 'Type' or 'mk' refer to the same thing when visualized in paraview? What I understand is that the mk will assume values from:

mk for boundaries = mkbound + 1 + fluidcount (usually fluidcount=9)

mk for fluid particles = mkfluid + 1

What does the 'Type' parameter mean when visualized in paraview?


  • 'Type' values in Paraview refer to:

    0: fixed

    1: moving

    2: floating

    3: fluid

  • Thanks for the clarification. So most probably I should use discrete color bands rather than continuous when using Type in the legend for paraview..
