how can I plot a contour!!!
 
hi everybody,

In my solver, I defined the gravity acceleration as a function of depth. now, I want to see the gravity contour in paraView. any body knows what should I do?

Thanks

Hi Mostafa,

Post #2 in this thread should tell you the basics:

You can also create iso-surfaces in the form of VTK files using the 'sample' utility outside of paraview.

Sometimes this makes dealing with large cases easier. In those cases you can create a VTK of some slices or iso-surfaces and only transfer them off of the cluster, as opposed to moving the whole case and doing all of your post-processing locally.
