Hello
I am interested in extracting planar data from StarCCM to plot my own contours in Python. The reason for using Python is so that I can easily subtract data of two different designs on the same plane, and thus generate delta pressure plots. The problem I face with this is that I cannot identify a way to extract the coordinates of solid boundaries that would form when a 3D object would intersect a planar surface. Could anybody tell me how to do this?
Regards
Srijit

Can easily be done in Star: one of the ways is to extract/import such a table and use interpolateTable***() function.
