Showing Time in TECPLOT
I have some unsteady results from fluent that I am going to use to make an animation. I've loaded all of the files (both data and case files) at once using the Fluent data loader. When I animate the solutions files, I would like to see the solution time somewhere in the frame, and have it update as the solution updates. I've seen animations like this in presentations before and I haven't been able to figure it out on my own. Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks in advance.
Do you use Tecplot 10 or Tecplot 360 ? I remember seeing a python script for the same in Tecplot forums but only for Tecplot 360.
I am using Tecplot 360. I found the solution to my problem not too long after I posted. It was to put &(SOLUTIONTIME) in a text box in the frame. Thanks
I write a fortran code for making a macro file that this macro file add time in every zone, but u must correct the position and size of the font in this program for your purpose.
5 format ('#!MC 1000')
write(1,*)'$!VarSet |MFBD| = ',char(39),'D:',char(39)
i_hr = itime / 60
i_day= i_hr / 24
if (i_day < 0 ) then
i_hr = mod(i_hr , 24)
i_min= mod(itime , 60)
write(1,*)'X = 40.0'
write(1,*)'Y = 85.00'
write(1,*)'ATTACHTOZONE = YES'
write(1,*)'HEIGHT = 15'
! write(1,10)char(39),i_day , i_hr,i_min,char(39)
! 10 format ('TEXT = ',a1,'Time ',i2,' day ' ,i3,':',i2,a1)
10 format ('TEXT = ',a1,' ',f8.2,' Sec ',a1)
write(1,*)'$!ACTIVEFIELDZONES += [',iz+1,']'
write(1,*)'$!ACTIVEFIELDZONES -= [', iz,']'
time = time+0.05
i don't find it !!
Tecplot gives a good example of showing solution time in one’s plot in the tutorial titled:
Transient Series Video 2: Understanding Transient Data through Extractions. The link is: http://www.tecplot.com/blog/2016/04/13/transient-series-video-2-understanding-transient-data-extractions/ .
Of course, you should also watch the first tutorial as well to get more tips on handling transient data in Tecplot 360 EX. That video is titled:Transient Series Video 1: Introduction to Transient Data and here is the link: http://www.tecplot.com/blog/2016/03/25/transient-series-video-1-introduction-transient-data/ .
