 February 21, 2007, 05:25 cylindrical coordinate #1 ammi Guest   Posts: n/a hi i am doing a simulation of 2d axisymetric problem(flow through complicated pipe ).i want to draw it cylindrical coordinate sysyem(r,z).but gambit shows X , Y , Z Coordinate . how to do in cylindrical co ordinate , will it show r, z axis ? i am new to fluent . please reply soon ammi
