I am an experienced Fluent User but new to CFX.

I have a case that I want to run in both.

Running in CFX was easy (took < day to setup and run).

Post-processing is little more foreign.

In fluent I can make lines (~40) by generating a journal file and reading it in.

In CFX, I guess I could do the same but for now help with the following would suffice.


In CFX Post (GUI), command line editor what is the equivalent to

line line-name x0 y0 z0 x1 y1 x1

What is a "line"? What do you want to do with it?

i think that you had little response purely because your question is not very well defined. can you elaborate what you want to do?

the equivalent of journals in cfx is scripting and can be done either directly using only cel expressions or a mix of perl commands with cel.
Top 4 tips
1. Knowledge is everything and Ignorance is dangerous.
2. Understand your limitations and try to eliminate them.
3. Get yerself a bike and hoon the chuffer. You will soon learn why dogs like to hang their heads out the car window.
4. Please before asking any questions on how to run simulations in CFX, go though all the tutorials
