Lightbulb Radial Slicing

Hi everybody,

I am currently trying to extract data on pressure distribution among the surface of a blade Profile. Goal is to create a plot of the pressure distribution over the axial chord length of the blade.

However, I want to extract these data from a slice that has a constant radius, which makes it impossible to use the Standard slicing tool.

Does anyone know another possibility? I'd really appreciate some help.

Thanks in advance!

The best way of doing this is calculating a new variable via data alter > specify equations

{radius} = sqrt( x**2 + y**2)

Where x and y are the variables assigned to the axes. To use a specific variable use the full name in {} like {X}.

From there use isosurfaces to create a "radial slice"

Thanks for the reply!

I already solved the Problem by also calculating the radius as a new variable, then creating contour lines along the radius and extracting the data by data>extract>contour lines.
