Unable to view contours

I seem to be unable to plot contours of my results. I'm trying to view contours of pressure/velocity etc, whether or not I have the 'filled' box checked or not in the display/contours menu, all I can view is my results in grid form.

Thanks for any help, Tom

Re: Unable to view contours
I have had a similar problem before which I resolved by turning hardware acceleration for the graphics off ( see ControlPanel > Display > Settings > Advanced > Troubleshoot ).

If you are doing a 2D study you may need to create a 2D plane to display your data on. You could simply create a plane using the fluid zone and then use this 2D plane to display your contour data on.

Hope this helps,

Thanks Simon, I'll give that a go...
