Curiosity & Question about cutting plane through axisymmetric region
 
Hi everyone!

I have been trying to get a slice through an OF-2.1.x axisymmetric region in order to be used as base to post-process streamlines afterwards with another software.

I've spent two days trying to understand why the following lines were giving me an EOF error message:

surfaces
(
constantPlane
{
type plane;
basePoint (0 0 0.005);
normalVector (0 1 0);
}
);

Now, I don't get that error message by using:
surfaces
(
triangleCut
{
// Cutingplane using iso surface
type cuttingPlane;
planeType pointAndNormal;
pointAndNormalDict
{
basePoint (0 0 0.005);
normalVector (0 1 0);
}
interpolate true;
}
);

But, I don't get any field data on that plane!!! :-( I get results for several line sets I have also defined in sampleDict, but nothing for that plane. I know I can go into paraView, but I'm trying to reduce the number of steps in my post-processing.

Could anyone bring some light on this doubt I now have, please?

Thanks!
