Hi
I want to create a lot of points and then check them in pathlines...The common way of creating points is really time consuming.Does anyone know how do this?Or any marco exist for doing this in udf?
Any ideas welcome

Create a journal file that have the following lines:
surface/point-surface ptname0 xvalue yvalue zvalue
surface/point-surface ptname1 xvalue yvalue zvalue
surface/point-surface ptname2 xvalue yvalue zvalue
surface/point-surface ptname3 xvalue yvalue zvalue
surface/point-surface ptname4 xvalue yvalue zvalue
...
You can even do it in Excel and then export the file as space delimited...save it as a .jou file and read it in Fluent.
Cheers,
Javier
