drankinmacup is on a distinguished road

I'm working with a curved pipe, and I want to be able to have an iso-surface based on the axial distance from the pipe inlet. My end goal is to easily be able to look at the secondary flow at any axial location in the pipe, and to also create an animation of the pipe cross-sections with secondary flow vectors from the inlet to outlet.

Any idea on how I can do this? Thank you for any input.
