Dear OF users,
I have been wondering if it is possible to extract results from only a portion of the computational domain for post processing purpose.

I have to simulate quite large mesh files, 6~7million grid points.
I use foamToTecplot360 utility and work on tecplot for post-processing in Windows OS. It sometimes cannot handle large files due to heavy memory involved.

So I have been trying to find out a way if it is at all possible in OpenFOAM to extract only a certain specified portion of the computational domain for post-processing in tecplot.

I'd be glad for any hints and heads-up!!
