Obtaining Results
I've got a simulation which is a body inside a 3D flowfield. I know that by using autoplot, I can take 1-elements slices through the field, but is there any way I can take data from whole planes of the flowfield without having to use Autoplot to extract 90 individual strips of the plane? Also, is there any way to get the data results on a surface of a model inside the field? At the moment, I only have Autoplot - what other analysis programs can input Phi files (or convert them) so that I can read data from it?

Re: Obtaining Results
Did you try Photon (runpho from command line)?

Re: Obtaining Results
I've had a look at photon and it seems like it's good for looking at results like VR Viewer; WHat I hope to do is to take planes of data at different x-coords and stick it into something that I can put in Excel; I also want to take the surface pressure plot on a curved revolved body, but I can't see anyway of doing that from PHOTON yet. I'm still pretty new to using it, so if you could give me a few pointers, I'd be very grateful.
