Add Measure Markings or Coordinates to the Contour
 
Hi,

I want to add the measure markings or coordinates to my volume fraction and velocity contours produced by Fluent.

Thus, I followed the instruction of Fluent Documentation(Version 6.18): 27.5.7 Adding a Bounding Frame. And I did add the measure markings to the contours. But the measure markings shown in Figures are too coarse to accurately study the images, I wonder

(1) how to refine the measure markings and add refined markings to the contours by Fluent?

(2) Besides this method as described by 27.5.7, are there any other methods to add the coordinates to the contour?

Any suggestions are much appreciated.

Are you trying to add contour labels? or just x,y,z coordinates? If you have Tecplot, this can easily be done.

Thanks Bob for your response. I just want to add x, y, or z coordinates to the Fluent contours. I don't have Tecplot in hand, any other softwares? And if I use Tecplot to add coordinates to the contours, could I magnify or reduce the contours and the coordinates at the same time?

Thanks.

Yes you can scale them

Thanks, Bob. I wonder if Origin 6.0 could also work for my problem?
