You can do this over the Execute Comands ( solve/execute comands ). As there are a lot of settings you can choose I would recomend to do it the following way : Built up your picture with the vectors as you want to get it later ( maybe save this view - itīs helpful ). Go into the TUI and start with : display vectors now follow the path fluent gives you and write down your decisions on a sheet of paper. At last your picture should be rebuilt. After that write your comands as you have written them down into an execute command line ( If you do that a few times youīll see that you can shorten the commands for example dis for display ). Donīt forget to change from `iteration īto `timestepīin the pannel under WHEN. I hope that helps.

1.) Open execute command-pannel ( solve/execute comands... ) 2.) Define comands : change from 0 to 1 3.) Change Iteration to Timestep 4.) In the textfield under `comandī write :

Dis vect vel vel-mag

This is just for example. If you have opened a window with a picture of the vectorsettings you want to have, fluent will make a vectorplot after every calculated timestep. If you want to have that done just every 5,10,15sec increase the number in the execute comand pannel depanding on your timestep.
