Im a 3rd engineering student, and have used ANSYS for about a year now, but am new to 3D simulations. I'm currently doing a series of simulations on a 3D pipe with a U-bend in it, but I cant work out how to create a vector plot of the cross section of the pipe at various different locations. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Create your plane sections (define your surfaces).

Then go to graphics=>vectors
select your surfaces and hit plot
