Plot stress along defined line

Hello to all,


I am pretty sure this question is basic and the answer straightforward, so please be nice! (I am new to Solidworks).


Here is my problem. I am applying torsion to a notched cylindrical specimen, and I would like to plot the stress from the center of the notch to the tip.

I found that I could apply some probes myself, and then have a graph of stress vs. # probes.

However, what I wish to do is have specific values.. what I mean is I would like to obtain the stress at specific points. From 0mm (the center of the notch) to Xmm (the tip) by steps of 0.1mm (or less).

I have attached a screenshot of what I have at the moment, maybe it'll clear up what I'm trying to explain.


Is there any way to achieve this?


Thank you in advance for your help
