Trace the derivative of a function in Ensight !
Hi again everybody !

I have a question concerning plotting with Ensight, I know that it's powerfull in ploting variables..., but my question is, can I plot for example the derivative of the velocity with respect to x or y, vs distance?! I have checked users tool, and all I found is how to calculate averages, min, max integrale ...but no derivative.!
If not, is it possible to write a python script that could do so!

thanks in advance!

Actually, the derivative functions are actually part of the Query Capability. You can Click on the Query/Plotter Icon at the top row of icons. The Query type is : Operate on Existing Queries. There are options for derivative (and many more) is there.
