Hi,

When I output temperature from CFX post, it always output the value with only one digit after the decimal point, like 381.1. How could I make it output more digits after the decimal point to have a better precision, like 381.149592?

Thanks.

Where are you only getting one decimal point? The function calculator gives many more than that, and most other gizmos give you control over the number format. If you go to scientific or floating point formats you can set the precision.

Go to the legend setting and there's an option in there somewhere where you can set scientific/fixed and the number digits after a decimal (precision).

This is all in the manual.

In the tool bar there is a button called number formatting. You can set the precision there.
