Summary0013003: save data format does not include legacy vtk
DescriptionIt seems I cannot save part of a Group DataSets in legacy vtk format.

- generate e.g. a sphere (Sources->Sphere)
- File->Save Data includes legacy vtk format
now group this:
- Select sphere only
- Filters->Group DataSets
and extract sphere only
- Filters->Extract Block
- File->Save Data does not include legacy vtk format

Or maybe the question should be how to extract the Polygonal Mesh from a Multi-block Dataset.

The VTK legacy format does not support multi-block data sets.

Have a look at the script Berk posted on the mailing list some time ago: [^]

It auto-extracts all blocks of a multi-block dataset as-is.

Use the script e.g. in a Programmable Filter, must convenient if that one is turned into a custom filter. Works in builtin as well as client-server mode.

Thanks for your answer.

Is there any chance of a built-in filter that does this?

No, there is no built-in filter that performs this functionality.

There are no plans to add a VTK legacy writer for multiblock data sets, so we can close this issue.
