Default No rendering surfaces have been set
Posts: n/a
Just a small question:

When I attempt to display the contours for my 3D model, Fluent replies: No rendering surfaces have been set.

When I highlight interior in the surfaces panel, the contours are displayed. is there something i have to do to prevent myself from having to do this every time?

i know that in my 2D model, this never occured.

Dear Hamers:

You have to indicate a domain for FLUENT to draw contours. When you choose interior all of 3D domain is selected. In most case 3D space contours are complicated and seems wrong. It is better to define 2D surfaces in your domain and draw you contours or vel. vectors on this surface. For difining these surfaces use surface>plane. Defining lines are usefull too.

Best Regards
