1. Check the Help of CFX I'm sure there is an easy way to do that.
2. The hard way:
- save the data for each plane in a separate text file
- read these files with a program (C++, Matlab ...) and calculate the average of each vector component
- save the data in a separate file using the same format as the format used by CFX in your data from the planes
- read back the new file in CFX and plot the average vector

3. Maybe you should also write to CFX technical support.
