Can anyone let me know a good plotting software rather than excel for plotting my transient analysis data i.e., obtained from fluent?

I tried in excel but im expecting a higher quality graph to plot large amounts of data.

I plot just an XY plot but i need a better and simpler one.

Thank you

Hi Sid,

There are a few. The industry standard, from what I've seen, is Tecplot. Tecplot Focus is sufficient for XY plots. I use that to plot convergence data.

A colleague of mine swears by gnuplot. It's simple and free and can create really clean nice plots.

I also like to use Matlab for plotting and its implementation is a lot like gnuplot. I'd give gnuplot a shot. In fact, this response has me wanting to learn more about it.

Try Paraview, its open source and much easier to use than Tecplot 360 (My personal experience!!)
