slope plane in CFD post
Hi guys, I want to see the velocity profile but the plane is not xy yz and xz plane. It's 15 degree relative to xz plane. How do I build that plane to look at my profile in CFD post.

Thank you

you may use surface -> iso-surface to create a surface on the x-z plane and then use surface -> transform -> rotate to move it to the designed position.

The easiest way to do this in my opinion is to find three points on your surface, (all three can for obious reason not lay on a straight line), the under "method" you chose to define the plane from three points...

Thank you very much, Is your suggestion used in Fluent or in CFD post. I can't find it in CFD post. could you please explain me briefly.

If you refer to my reply it is in CFD-post.
Click surfaces > plane
in the lower left part of the screen where you adjust your plane, under method you chose define from three points.
