I'm in need of creating a conical surface for post processing purposes. Is it possible in Fluent? If so, how?

Thanks. Sorend

Use quadric plane! Surface->Quadric... and Type: Quadric.

And by the way, how would you create a triangular surface for Postprocessing ?

Here's a reference for the quadrics: http://www.geom.umn.edu/docs/referen...as/node61.html

For a triangle, you will have to iso-clip (a couple of times) a plane/surface to x, y or z coordinates. If x, y and z don't work you can always create your own coordinates using Custom Field Functions.
