Dear All,

I have a surface in Fluent and would like to create a new one for post processing, which has just an offset to the old one. Is there a similar way to do it like in a CAD programm (grab the old one and then define an offset)?

The thing is that it is for expample a concial surface which I cant create with iso-surfaces via the mesh values (x,y,z, angular,...)

Thanks a lot for your help!

Regards, Tobias

Surface -> Transform

then traslate or use offset according to the needs

Thank very much!!!
That works! The only question I have, when I use Iso-Distance, which gives me an offset to my surface, I'll get the offset to both sides. Is it possible to get it only to one side?

Regards, Tobias
