Hi to all of you,

I'm trying to obtain a data file (.txt) of Pressure coefficient of my 2D geometry.
Looking on the web I understood that a possible way is to develope a Python script and link it to Tecplot 360.

Unfortunately I have no experience with Python and I'd like to find an alternative way. Does someone have an idea on how to obtain such file directly from Tecplot ?

Thanks to all

Hello Nick,

There are a number of different ways to write-out ascii files with Tecplot 360. Here is a video that describes how to write out Tecplot ascii formatted .dat files (you could change the extension to .txt easily). See the transcript: 3. How do I write out extracted slices, or the line I just extracted, or that data point through time? [47:54]

You can go to File>Write Data... to do this action.

Secondly, you could also try Tools>Write Data as Formatted Text... to write-out a more simple text file.

Does this answer your question?
