How can i animate an unsteady simulation in Star ccm
 
I run a simulation of 1000 iterations and i would like to see all the timesteps from the first to the end as an animation

So how can i do that? i can not find any tutorial

Also how can i delete the last 100 iteration and start from the 900 ??

You can export the scene at a set timestep interval, and then compile in movie maker or a similar program. To do this go to

scene > attributes > update

then click on the save to file button and specify the directory. If you click on the update frequency tab can set how often the file will export.

As for the second question, I would probably set to autosave every 100 timesteps in 2 files (so one file saves the 100, 300, 500 etc up to 900th timestep) and then restart from that point.

Hope that helped
