Helllo,
Does anybody know how can I change accuracy of scale in Fluent? I need 20 levels of temperature between 999K and 1000K. So one level should be 0.05K.

Assuming that you are calculating the temperature contour, uncheck auto range, global range and clip to range. specify 999k as min and 1000 as max..in levels specify 20. you should be able to get what you are looking for.

make sure that your colormap is float with 2 precision.

I did everything you said but I can't find option to change precision of scale. I obtained picture like attached but I need numbers like: 999.1, 999.2, 999,3.... and so on.

i guess..your colormap is in exponential form..you need to change it to float with a 2 precision..
