    Thermal Results

    David Mesnard

      It seems to me that the "plot" you get in the thermal simulation is the 3D model, colored to represent the parameter magnitude (temperature, etc.).  How can I get numeric data along a line or a plane?  Flow simulation allows you to draw a line on the model, and the data from the results is stored and plotted in Excel for the closest nodes to that line .  How can I do this with thermal simulation? Thank you.

          Hi David:  A way I know of, is to develop a "clipping" plane (if you edit definition on a contour plot, there should be a "clipping" option on the sub-menu). Once the plane is sliced through a section, you can use the Probe tool to parse points directly on the section plane. In the PM there is a graphing option so you can develop a trace graph of the variation of temperature along the probed points. There should also be a "save" option on the PM so you can save the numeric data directly and graph it in Excel, for example. Hope that helps!
