Dear buddies,

I have one last problem for my simulation flow-3D.

After scaling the unit from (meter) to (mm) and the simulation, the graphs look perfect.

However, the display only shows in 2D. When I switched to 3D display, nothing came out. May I know what the problem is?

I am currectly writing my bachelor thesis now and this problem has been consuming a lot of my time and i am forced to delay my deadline from time to time.

Please help me over this problem and i will be very grateful!

Thanks a lot and have a nice day!

best regards

In 3-D you must select iso-surface = fraction of fluid to display the fluid surfaces. Then select color variable = velocity, or pressure, or whatever you're interested in. Then select component iso-surface overlay = solid volume to also show the solid surfaces. Also click 'mesh blocks' at the bottom and make sure you're displaying all mesh blocks, and make sure the sliders for x,y,z extents are pulled all the way to each side so the entire extent is displayed. Finally, click on Units at the bottom and make sure you're displaying a unit system. If you are using an old version of the software, it may have trouble converting units, the solution for which would be to upgrade to the latest v10.1. Good luck.
