problem in displaying surfaces in CFX
3 Attachment(s)
Hi together,

i've already postet this question in the meshing-forum.
My problem is that CFX Pre and Post are not displaying my surfaces of a 2D-axisymmetric labyrinth seal correctly (see pictures).
I am using ICEm as mesher and extracting he mesh as CFX-files.

I've already checked the surface-normals, but it seems as this didn't help.
Is this a usual problem in CFX, can anybody help me?

The Problem only appears when I'm coloring the surfaces with "constant" color.

I don't think you are using symmetry planes for the faces. You seem to be using periodic boundaries. Change them to symmetry planes and I think things will work.
