Contours in 3D model
I want to create the contours (not filled) of velocity and volume fraction in a 3D model. However, fluent asks me for selecting a surface for rending (default-interior) and this shows me the mesh. I don't want to see the mesh, just the contours. Any suggestion?

Thanks in advance,

not really. display mesh in face form. then select those surfaces in contours frame and click on display. it should work

What I did as to create an iso-surface of water (vf=0.5), then I plotted the grid (wall) and apply transparency of 75. Then I plot the contours of the iso-surface with velocity magnitude. I got a nice figure.
