I'm trying to plot the velocity at a specific point in a 3D room, i.e. (x,y,z)=(1,2,1). I'm trying to do this so I can determine when the problem becomes mesh independent. Thanks.

You can then choose to only print the monitor info or print and write. Regards Luke

 February 20, 2013, 18:57 #4 Member   Join Date: Sep 2012 Posts: 40 Rep Power: 6 Thanks to both of you for replying. I'm not sure what you mean by "create a point." Do I have to go back into DesignModeler to create it or can I do that in Fluent?

 February 21, 2013, 14:35 #6 Member   Join Date: Sep 2012 Posts: 40 Rep Power: 6 Ok, so I created two points in my volume. One I put in the middle and one I put in front of the inlet so that I could see if it was actually working. Both I have set to Flow rate, velocity, velocity magnitude. I've done a number of iterations and they both show no mass flow. What I'm trying to do is see the velocity through a point in the to see when the solution has converged. Can someone help me out?
