Hi, I have 2D model and I want to display temperature contours. I have enabled button FILLED, but there is dispayed only coloured mesh, not continual field of colours. When I have 3D model it is OK. Thank you very much for your advices.

Go to Zone and add the cell zones to your list of zones.
Now plot your contours on the cellzones, you should get a filled contour plot

Regards
Luke

Thank you Luke, but I am afraid, that I dont understand. How can I get to "Zone"? Do you mean Surface/Zone/...and Create? Please, could you describe me the path step by step? Thank you very much!

Yes. Go to surface, zone. Select your fluid zone and click create. Now in contours select that zone and plot your contour.

Yes it works, but only in steps of transient calculation. In steady state, if I add zone and start contours, it will display only shape without contours
