axisymmetric post-processing
Is it possible when dealing with 2d axisymmetric, to post-processing the results in a 3d view? How does it work?

I think it's not possible in fluent post processing, but I remember it can be done in cfd-post if I remember well..
In fluent, as I know, you can only display the "other half" of the geometry by mirroring in respect to the axis.

Thank you for your reply Mr.Daniele
I think, you are exactly right about displaying the other half in fluent. do you know about post processing in CFD post for 3d view of axisymmetric model?

If I remember correctly, FLUENT 2D axisymmetric case is shown as a 3D wedge in CFD Post (Check). If yes, you can use a rotational symmetry to display the whole cylindrical model.
