Default How can I create a rotating monitoring point?
Andy Cong
Posts: n/a

I want to monitor the velocity magtitude near a blade in my pump flow simulation. For the blade is rotating with a speed, and I only can create a stationary monitoring point(surface->points), when the blade is rotating, the point is far and far away from the blade.

So can I set the point rotating with a speed too? or I can do it in another way?

Thanks a lot.
