Using the Plot3D Reader

I’ve used the PLOT3D reader in a FieldView version prior to 12.3 to read my overflow-2 data. Are restarts created in that version compatible with version 12.3?

Yes, but don’t try editing FVX scripts (.fvx) or data restarts (.dat) to change the data reader name from plot3d to overflow-2 and expect it to work properly, since some derived function names have been changed, (eg. ‘Pressure [PLOT3D]’ vs. ‘Pressure [OVERFLOW]’). Constants which you may have used in your own formulas may have been renamed with this reader.
