I'm working on a case @Re=40 000, I resolve the boundary layer and I would like to see its separation.

How can I do that in ParaFoam? Apparently, best way to see that is to look at the streamlines and see where they detached from the wall.
But in parafoam, even if I put a huge number of points in the streamline tool : Either it crashes or either it's not precise enough

Does anyone suceed in visualising separation point?

Thanks for the help
