Default How to View Contour Scene while Solving

Hello Everyone,

I'm coming from using Star-CCM+ so this may be a simple question for Fluent folk, but when locally running Fluent is there a way to minimize the residual plot while solving to observe other plots and/or scenes in real time?

You do not need to minimize residuals to view other fields, however, you need to set those up before starting a simulation. In Fluent, don't know how it is in CCM, you can stop at any instant and view the results and start from that point again. Not a good way but handy at times. You can set up Fluent animation where Fluent keeps on updating contours, or vectors, or xy-plots with iterations or time-step in their own windows; you can use multiple. Or there is an option called Fluent As A Server wherein you can post-process or monitor a case while it is running in batch mode.

PM to be used if and only if you do not want something to be shared publicly. PM is considered to be of the least priority.
