Export data from CFX
Hi guys!

I have a question for you. I am working with aneurysms and, as you know, the geometry is quite complicated. When i export results, for example the velocity field in a section, i have in the output file a column vector with all the data. The problem is that, for example, if I would like to do a contour plot or a flooded contour plot, Matlab want a matrix (a rectangular matrix :) ) can help me? Tecplot can do a contour plot with a column vector? (i have the coordinates of the nodes...)

Thanks guys!

Re: Export data from CFX
Hi, import your file in tecplot as csv data file (no tecplot file) and then make a triangulation of your data. Then you can plot your data contour. If necessary cancel 1-6 lines of your file. Let only the line with variables without dimensions.
