Hello, everyone! I'm new with flow3d, and my version is V11. Could anyone help me? My problem is:
1, Why the results of the casting filling analyse is so big, almost above 30gb? is it normal? Is there a way to reduce the memory?
2, I want to output the JPG results of simulation, but it takes me a lot of time to take a snapshot one by one. Is there anyway to output all JPG once time?

Thanks a lot!

1. output files size is depended on your "Restart data interval" time, the number of cells and amount of output parameters. by default Restart data interval is empty and restart data is written to HDD in any 0.1 of your FINISH TIME (for example in any 10 seconds for finish time=100). you can set a longer time duration for restart data interval on OUTPUT tab.

2. there are different ways to get snapshots in 2D or 3D output display. in 2D use the OUTPUT PLOTS button on DISPLAY tab, select your file type and push the write buttonn. in 3D use ANIMATION PLOTS and un-check the "delete source bmp files".
