Default Finding out face-coordinates from contour-plot
Posts: n/a
Hi there!

For analyzing the results of a Fluent 3D-simulation, we need to determine the y- and z-coordinates of certain faces in our domain.

A horribly complicated way to do this is: *identify the face of interest in a contour- or vector-plot *plot a contour-plot of the grid-coordinate *narrow down the plot-range such that the exact coordinate of the face is returned when right-clicking on it. *repeat this for the other coordinate.

However, we'd need to do this more than a dozen times, so our question is:

Is it possible to determine the coordinates of a face directly out of a contour-and-grid- or vector-and-grid-plot? (And if yes, how?!)

Thanks in advance!
