prashan.p is on a distinguished road
Can someone please tell me how to get the surface normal vector for a curved surface in Ansys post. I found an option called "Normal X" "Normal Y" and "Normal Z" under geometry variables. However, when I probe the surface I get "0" for all three Normal components. How can I solve this problem?
