Hi,
I am running some simulation on a plane channel geometry as shown in Fig. 1. However, when I exported the file into Tecplot, it shows a very wierd condensed sort of geometry as shown in Fig. 2. I never observed it before. Does anyone has idea about this issue?

Thanks in advance.

I would check to make sure that the XYZ axes are set to be dependent on the same factor (like 1). Tecplot likes to default 3D plots to weird ratios at times. Also, I assume that the "3D Cartesian" plot type is selected. If it's not either of those then the only other thing I have seen that creates issues like that is bad data in the file - either bad values or something that doesn't exactly follow the Tecplot file spec for whatever format you are trying to read in.

Hi,
Thank you for your response. I managed to figure out the issue. I need to fix the scale factors. I adjusted the aspect ratio of X and Z to one which is what I need but I am not able to change the value of Y to 1 due to which the features in Y direction are shrunk relatively to what I have in Fluent. If I try to change, the number reverts back to 0.085824734. Any idea how I can change all three directions to one.

Thanks in advance.

Try setting each of them to be independent.

I appreciate your responding. I'd double-check that the XYZ axes are configured to depend on the same variable (like 1). Sometimes, Tecplot wants to default 3D graphs to odd ratios. Furthermore, I presumptively chose the "3D Cartesian" plot type. If neither of those is the problem, then the only other thing I've seen that can cause problems like that is bad data in the file, either wrong numbers or anything that doesn't exactly meet the Tecplot file specification for whatever format you're trying to read in heardle game
