Exporting a file
Hi all

After I got the streamlines, how can I mix them in one paper. Or in another way, how can I have them out of Fluent to word or excel with a good quality?

Thanks, Rola

Re: Exporting a file
Make hardcopies of the images (File->Hardcopy). I like jpeg because it's readable by any program that will allow you to insert images. Also, you can increase the resolution by increasing the "size" of the image... Some people out here are going to disagree with using jpegs because they're not the best file type, but I'm lazy and hate dealing with the fact that some image types aren't recognized by some programs, so I go with what's easiest... I've also never run into a problem where I couldn't get a jpeg that wasn't good enough for a presentation or report, so I just keep going with it.

Hope this helps, and good luck, Jason

Hi Jason

Thanks alot. I don't want to be that one who is hard to satisfy, but the resolution is still not so good.

Thanks again for your support and valuable advices Yours, Rola

Re: Exporting a file
When you say resolution, are you talking about the density of the streamlines, or the quality of the image?

What have you tried so far?

Thanks, Jason

Export the data to tecplot. You will be satisfied.

I've done this too, but a message of error appeared that I couldn't pass. It didn't work with me too. May I send you the cas and data files of a case of mine to export it to me with telling me the steps?!!

When I said resolution, I ment the quality of the image. The lines aren't smooth. To make a rake was one of my aims too, Thanks

Re: Exporting a file
I might be late in your response but it depends also the image format. I usually used png for all the word doc and looks great. Tecplot can do better however, if you get it from fluent why border going to ...

all the best!!
