Hi,
In CFX-post, Is it possible to edit legend color limits values?
In static structural workbench, it is possible to specify the limits for each color, for example the red orange colour to start at 30 and ends at 50.

In CFX-post, it looks like it is not possible?

Regards

Yes you can do this. But rather than clicking on the legend you have to select the tree item you wish to adjust, change it over to manual min/max (can't remember the exact name of the option) and type in your desired values.

Thanks dear ghorrocks
You are doing wonderful work in this forum

It looks like I didn't deliver the idea clearly,
I want to specify the range for each colour in the legend,
The "User specified" option allows me to adjust the minimum and maximum values of the legend only.

Regards

CFD-Post does not have an equivalent to the workbench function here. All I can suggest is to define a custom colour map.

You can do this using "Value List" instead of the other options. Down side to this it can get cumbersome to implement, particularly if you have alot of values or contour colors you want to use

Good point. If you have lots of values you could set it up using CFD-Post CEL or a session file.

Thanks for your help dear colleagues

That "Value list" involves writing commands manually?
I found the "Session" tab but it looks like it requires written commands.

I think they should consider making it as simple as in static structural workbench, because you may want to compare the fluid behaviour for same model under different cases, and having values ranges adjusted automatically reduces the ability of having easy visual comparison.

Best regards

The easiest way to do a session file is to record a session file doing something close to what you want to do then edit it. You don't write them from scratch.
