I want to see the angle of inclination and co-ordinates of valve in the engine geometry. On clicking bounds in get the overall boundary in a box of the part I have selected. But if I want to see how much is my valve inclined with respect to cylinder head, how can I check that in Ensight???
Kindly tell me.

I typically use the Plane tool to help with geometric investigation in EnSight. The tool can be used to clip the geometry, and by rotating the tool (and thus the clip), you can determine the angle of geometry (in this case the valve angle).

Take a look at this video link demonstrating this usage:

Hello all,
I'm doing simulation of heat exchanger.
Shell side fluid is water and tube side fluid is hot gas.
So how to capture the properties of gad only in UDF.
If anyone had idea about it, please let me know as early as possible

Thanks for your help kevin. It helped, now I can get the plane angle as well.
