Is there a way to scale a geometry in CFX Post?
I have simulated a pipe with 0.015 m Diameter and a Length of more than 1 m.
For a better visualisation I wish to "shrink" the length to 25% or smth. just for Visualisation pruposes without affecting e.g. the Diameter.

Is there a known Way to do this?

For all objects, go into the object window details, there should be a VIEW tab. Under the view tab there is a scale. Check that and adjust as you see fit.

The scale applies to X,Y,Z coords, so for simplicity, hopefully your geometery lines up.

Thx a lot!
Exactly what I was looking for!
Though as an explanation for any one else (because I needed some try to figure it out myself ):
If you want to draw a plane to show e.g. the pressure repartition it is sufficient to edit the "View" Tab of the "Plane" and define there a scaling factor <- this what singer1812 meant when mentioning the object window details
No need to try to scale all geometry parts

Allthough one notice: The geometry will not follow / line up.

Thx again singer!
