 April 13, 2003, 07:56 Surface plot in 3D with Fluent ? #1 rosco Guest   Posts: n/a Hello, Is Fluent postprocess can do a 3D plot with data on a surface? Please have a look to the link to understand : http://www.coolingzone.com/Guest/New...pt_crossec.gif I want to make a similar graph like in the link for heatsink baseplate temperature but I don't find how to do. I have tried with Tecplot too but no results. It seems to be 2D only. Anyone could help me? Thx a lot

But how to say Fluent to put in a file, in 3 columns, the node at (X,Y) with the value (temperature on a plate for example) to create the 3D plot in Mathlab?? Thx for your answer Alex

Now I realize that you generate your data in fluent. Therefore, you can export the temperature on the x, y coordinates to a file. One way to do it is write a UDF to exporte the cell centroids and the temperature on them. I don't remember if is possible to write a file with the information on a plane but I guess you also can do it. Just check the User's manual for writing a file Best regards Alex Munoz
