fedvasu is on a distinguished road
So, I am running this openfoam simulation and I need areaAverage velocity and pressure on a surface,currently the entire plane is being read, I wan't to specify my own in sampleSurfaceDict,

type faceSource;
functionObjectLibs ("");
enabled true;
outputControl timeStep;
log true;
valueOutput true;
source sampledSurface;
//setFormat raw;
surfaceFormat vtk;

type plane; // always triangulated
basePoint (0 -1.5 0);
normalVector (0 -1 0);
operation areaAverage;

is there a type circle? or a way to specify radius? in sampledSurfaceDict

type plane; // always triangulated
basePoint (0 -1.5 0);
normalVector (0 -1 0);

I don't have any access to software which can produce stl for 2D/3D surfaces. triSurfaceMesh needs that.
