Default 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,

Humberto

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.
