Default Text Commands For Iso Surfaces
Posts: n/a
I need to create iso-surfaces in specific zones based on grid coordinates. I would normally do this under the gui, but my file is to big so I have to do it as a batch job. The manual gives me the following command: surface/iso-surface I don't know how structure the rest of the command to specify the zone and position.

If anyone can post a few lines of a journal file in which iso surfaces are created it would be amazingly helpful.

I need to do about 400 of these, so the plan is to generate the commands using Matlab.

Hi Justin

the following text command will create an isosurface named x0 of constant x-coordinate 0 within a given fluid zone with zone id "ID". "ID" is an integer which you can get from the boundary condition panel.

surface iso-surface x-coordinate x0 () ID () 0 () q

cheers Max
