Hey Guys,
I'm doing a 3D simulation of droplet impact in ansys v13 (using the vof). When the droplet impacts there is some air entrapping at the floor. I want to display the movement of the air entrapment/inclusion. The problem is: when i display the droplet impact i just can see the whole droplet with its surface. But i can't look inside the droplet to track the air entrapment. When im doing a Iso Surface through the center of the droplet its possible to see the air entrapment. But when the air entrapment is moving out of the iso layer -> i can't track it anymore

I didn't find a way how to get the droplet transparent to see inside the droplet and track the movement of the air inclusion. Does anybody know how this is possible in the Vof method? Or how else could i track the air inclusion? I don't want to do 50 iso surface layers through the droplet to track the movement.

PS: sorry for my bad english
greetings =)
