I'm trying to visualize surfac
I'm trying to visualize surface elevation of an water/air interface using interFOAM result. First I made an iso-surface of volume-fraction (gamma = 0.5). Nect, I was trying to plot filled contour of z-coordinate on the iso--surface. I could not do it, because z-coordinate was not available in the data paraFoam read in.

Can someone help?

Hmm... I guess what you say should be done easily in TecPlot... of course if you have TecPlot

I suppose so. My question was how to do it using paraFoam. How do you export OpenFOAM data in Tecplot format?

Then if you want transfer ascii data to binary, use tec2bin tool under the same topic.

Hope that helps. Good luck!
