Sorry if this thread is misplaced, but I didn't really find a suitable forum for my question...

I am just starting to use Tecplot 360 for visualizing my CFD results. Is there a possibility to stretch a 2D data set (e.g. a slice) in the third dimension by a certain solution value? So the height of the resulting 3D surface corresponds to the this value.

What I mean is the "Warp" filter in Paraview.

Thanks for your help!
Andreas

Yes, of course. To do this, select the type of display "3D Сartesian"
and select the display in the third dimension variable in menu "Plot->Assign XYZ"

Thanks, this works if I have a purely/originally 2D data set.

But what if I have both a 2D data set (e.g. a 2D zone created by slice extraction) and a 3D data set (e.g. the original model)? Can I visualize both in the same plot?
The problem is that I have would have to assign different XYZ variables:

for the 3D data set:
X -> X
Y -> Y
Z -> Z
(because I want to see the model as it is)

But for the 2D slice:
X -> X
Y -> Y
Z -> U (or any other variable that I want to use for warping)

Can this be realized somehow?

It is quite hard do it in one frame. AFAIK only single assignment (X,Y,Z) is available in frame. What you say may be obtained by using a trick with two frames, with a transparent background at the front frame (see example).

However, this approach seems to me to be too complicated. I can tell you step by step how to do it, if this option suits you. Maybe there's an easier way to do it

PS: If you do not need to combine the slice and the 3D view, you can simply create two frames on one page

I believe that SergeAS has provided the best solution to your question. An additional hint on how to have multiple frames in one view (with one having a transparent background) is provided in this tutorial tip on the Tecplot web site: http://www.tecplot.com/Training/Plot...ceControl.aspx

Regards,
Scott
