I want to record some parameters in a tube cross-section and tried to create such ring-shaped planes for this reason, but I wasn't successful. Thank you for your help! Lilly

First, ensure that your domain has the correct "axial", "radial" and "tangential" directions: Cell Zone Conditions->Rotation Axis Origin->Rotation Axis Direction. Then, create your iso-clip surface: Surface->Iso-Clip "Clip to values of"->Mesh "Radial coordinate" Set your min and max radii, click ok, and then you have the annular surface.
