Exporting data from simulations
Hi Everyone,
I am new here and cant solve a very trivial problem. I am using starccm+ for simulation but for post processing and visualizing i would like to use the data generated from starccm+ and plot them myself. I could not find a way to do so.

For example I have simulated a 3 dimensional steady state flow in rectangular duct. Now I want a scalar field pressure (or any other field function) at each of the centroid in the domain(P(x,y,z)).

I can export the data in formats that can be imported by other post processing softwares such as tecplot but that doesn't solve my purpose. I cant seem to export it in ascii or .csv or .dat format. Ultimately i want to import the simulation data into matlab and manipulate the data there.

Any help regarding this would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

Select your region as Parts, and the scalars of interest for Scalars. Right-click on the table, and select export.

Thanks f-w. That did the job.
