Default Mapping data for every time step

Hi everybody.

I running a case of a flow inside a rough channel with an LES model. Now i would like to pick the data from an "inner" plane of the volume for every time step and use it as inlet data for other cases.
The "problem" is that I don't want to map only the latest time, but all the time steps so that i can maintain the turbulence that i generated.

Is this possible?

To do this i need to save the data for every time step with
writeControl    timeStep;

writeInterval   1;

To avoid HUGE output files, is it possible to save datas only from a particular plane? Has it to be a patch? If yes, how can i create a patch inside my domain?

I found this post ( but I didn't understood if with this method i map all the time steps or only the last one.

Thank you very much.
