Hi Craig,

By default, OpenDX cannot read hdf5 files. But the Cactus project has an 
ImportHDF5 module that can import hdf5 files to OpenDX. A brief 
introduction of the module is at Section of CitcomS manual.

The source code and documentation of ImportHDF5 module can be found in

Let me know if you have problem in building and using the module.
