Default CFX Post question - creating a reference vector

Hi,

I am creating a velocity vector plot in CFX-Post, where the magnitude of the velocity is represented by the length of the vector. However, I would like to have the vectors in black and simply utilise a reference vector (say, a vector representing 1 m/s) instead of a colour scale and a legend. Is there a way to do this? I have consulted the documentation and cannot find one myself.

Regards, and many thanks, Martin

Hi,

This cannot be done in CFX easily (to my knowledge). You could probably make a reference vector using line objects with the length scaled correctly, but this is not very nice and now you mention it is an obvious feature CFX appears to have missed. I would talk to your CFX support person about a feature request.

Thanks for that. Unfortunately, I have a bit of a time limit on this project, so I may have to go with a quick and ugly fix this time.
