Hello everyone,

is there a way to change the number of significant figures in the files created by SU2_DEF? (Surface_Grid.plt, Surface_Grid.stl, Volumetric_Grid.plt)

I have noticed the number of significant figures of the .su2 mesh file is much larger than that for the above mentioned files.

Thanks,

Z

Thanks for your question.
I think this can be changed in the output_structure.cpp file. (this will require much searching for the appropriate lines re-compiling the code)

Dear Heather,

Thank you for your reply. I found out the specific line to change is in output_tecplot.cpp, under the voice "Tecplot_File.precision(###)", where ### is the number of significant figures you want to use.

Best wishes,

Z
