creating line for dispalying data ?
 
Hi, can anyone tell me how to create line in 3D geometry for reporting data. Because as I know in fluent there is only surface for displaying data.

Thanks in advance

Go to SURFACE - LINE/RAKE, enter the coordinates for your line, rename the line if you wish and click create

Thanks, one more thing
 
Thanks, but how about if I want create circle line not circle surface, can we also do it from quadric surface.

Sorry, don't know...any takers?
 
Erm, sorry not sure about that one - I couldn't see any mention of curved lines in Fluent's help....anyone else know?

I think you have to export the data on and do some postprocessing yourself.

Create a quadric for a sphere, then iso-clip the sphere to a constant coordinate location (actually, you'll need to specify a small delta for the iso-clip).

To create a circle : First create surface of constant radial coordinate. Then create surface of the other coordinate (for example x=const), but this time be sure that the previously created surface is highlighted in the right column. An intersection will be automatically created.
