Hi all,

I am solving the fluid flow using Ansys work bench with Geometry, Fluent and CFDpost modules and my problem involves with multiple symmetry surfaces. I am done with the simulations but I have a hard time to show the results on the complete geometry in CFDpost. The problem is that I can only mirror the geometry with one plane in CFDpost by defining a reflecting plane (insert>location>plane), using instance reflection (insert>instance transform) and showing the reflected results (wireframe>view>apply instancing transform). Surprisingly, CFDpost does not let me to choose multiple planes while showing the reflected results, i.e. if I define plane1, plane2, ... and reflect the geometry using instance reflection with these planes as instancereflection1, instancereflection2, ... them all at the same time using wireframe view option.

Does anyone know how I can solve this problem?
