Plot data for a fixed point
Dear FOAMer,

My test case is an oscillating cylinder and I'm using pimpleDyMFoam solver. In the post-processing step in paraview, I need to plot a parameter over time for a fixed point on the wake of cylinder.
Since cylinder is oscillating, all of the points are moving accordingly. My question would be how can I extract data for a fixed point, while other points are moving?
Using probe-location filter gives me a plot. By checking point displacement for that point you'll see it's not a fixed point.

Best regards,
