Ansys Insight: Simulation plane in 2D FDTD

      Is it possible to do a 2D simulation in FDTD Solutions on a plane other than the default XY plane?

      By default, the FDTD solver only has 2D setting on the XY plane. That said, there are some ways to set up a quasi-2D simulation in a 3D FDTD solver, say on the XZ plane with the memory requirement on the scale of a 2D simulation.

      The trick is make a 3D simulation region with a one-mesh-cell thick y span. Like this screenshot below:
