3D figures for 2D axisymmetric cases and length scale
Good evening guys!!

This is the my second post here, and I'm asking for advice just before wasting lot of time trying to solve this on my own, but... I have no idea. They are likely very easy questions, but I'm a begginer...

1- I've carried out a simulation of an axisymmetrical model. The mesh I built was a 2D axisymmetrical mesh (2D mesh in GAMBIT + axisymetrical condition in FLUENT). The question is, after the simulation reached a stable condition, I wanted to represent some 3D figures about the results. Questions: is it possible in fluent?? How could I do it?? Thanks in advance.

2- In another simulation, I got some pictures of the vortex generated but I would like to have a length reference, kind of lenght scale like the one you can find in all the maps to have an idea of the real length of what is represented. Like 5mm are this length, and you can compare this length with the drawing. Questions: Is it posible?? How to do that?? Again thanks in advance.

Yeah, those are all my problems, if someone could help me with them it would be really appreciated!! Hopefully this is the correct place to post this questions... (the first time I was wrong...)

Thanks, romantico.
