Hi,

I hope someone can help me.

After simulate a hill i want to sample data along a line in a given height. The tricky part is to let the line follow the countur of the hill in this specified height. Do anybody know how to accomplished this with sampleDict?

I appreciate any help and thank you in advance,
Kris

Hi Taylor,
I have the same problem. I would like to calculate the vertical offset from my boundary surface (the ground) of my mesh cell centers. Have you found a way to get the cell height relative to a surface/boundary?
Thank you

Hi,
I think I need similar tool as you described in this post. Lets say that I have a filed F. I need to sample (x,y,z) along contour line for e.g. F = 0.5.
It is possible to do this in paraview, but the way it organizes points is total chaos...

Could you share with me your method ?

Thanks
Ziem
