XY Plot of liquid fraction

1 Attachment(s)
Hey guys,

I would like to export the liquid fraction curve of a 2D melting problem in order to process the graph in Excel or Origin.

I don't know exactly where or how to start in this case. I'm started using Fluent and the user guide is not really helpful to me.

Could someone help me? It's probably easy :/

I attached a picture with the geometry and the liquid fraction I would like to plot (green)

If your domain is in XY you can do this work:
in x axis: select mesh/ x coordinate
in Y axis: select mesh/ y coordinate
in surface: create iso surface of volume fraction=0.5 and select that.
Be success

Thanks a lot! It worked perfectly, exactly what I was looking for. Thaaanks!

A further question. How can I tell Fluent to use the left bottom corner of my geometry as the (0,0) point of my diagram? I would like to plot four melt fronts in one XY Plot but at the moment the zero value of the X axe is somewhere in the middle.

Thanks :)

It should look somehow like this but with the (0,0) in the left bottom corner
