Creating polyline from surface intersection
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hello!

Now that I am trying to post-process some results I can't figure out how to create polylines that are not on boundaries (unless you use a csv file).

Does anyone have a clue on how to create polylines by intersecting an interface boundary and a surface of revolution? ANoher question would be how to control the chart count? Apparently the default is 50 points, but sometimes I get 70...

Here's a pic to illustrate. Basically I want to mid-section the annulus!

Thanks!

you will most likely get more information and flexibility using the Turbo tab in CFD-Post.

Yeah, that helps a lot!
Cheers!

Is there a better way to limit the circumferential turbo lines?
There's only the option to input the angles, but given the geometry that's kind of hard to determine!
