I am using waves2foam toolbox, and want to visualize my results as below from

The contour plot is ploted at alpha1=0.5. But how I color it by the elevation?

Hi Yejun,

you can apply a Calculator filter on the contour and select the Z Coordinate (scalar group).

Thank you, Pable.

It is really a easy and smart solution.

You can also use the "Elevation" filter and tell it to colour along the axis or line of your choosing.
