Default displaying 3d simulation
Posts: n/a
Hi, I would like to know how can i visualize only a plan of my 3d simulation. Have I to create a transversal section in my domain? I'd like to do it because it's not really convenient to see all thearrows of different section of my volume... thanks a lot

yes u have to create surface planes b4 ur simulate ur model..whr or in the regions u want to view ur model..after the simulation u can view only that plane.

You can create surfaces at any time within Fluent. All the options are available under the Surfaces menu. If you want the grid to lie perfectly on that surface, then yes, you have to create the surface within Gambit and split the volume with the surface and then mesh the volumes, but this isn't necessary by any means. I routinely create several (even hundreds) of surfaces used to view the solution, and this would be a nightmare within Gambit, so I create them in Fluent (if there's enough of them I write a Journal file that will create them for me). You can even "crop" these surfaces so that they don't extend across the entire domain if that's what you're looking for.
