Hi Foamers,

I have a problem with the Postprocessing in Paraview.
I want to get the pressure along the surface of an ellipsoid. For this purpose I don't know the best way.

There are any special filters for this task?

One idea of me was, I create a clip in the middle of the ellipsoid. And next I calculate the koordinates of the ellipsoid. With them I can draw a spline. Of course that isn't the best way. Now I want to plot the pressure along this spline/ or the calculated points, but I don't know how?

I hope anybody can help me. That would make me happy!
