I simulated a case of fluid flow on an HPC cluster using Ansys Fluent 19.2 in batch mode. The simulation worked fine and since I did not have enough RAM to read the data file for post processing, I'm trying to save images of my contours remotely using TUI commands. So I use this shell command to run fluent to have graphics enabled:
fluent 3ddp -gu -t16 -mpi=openmpi -i &Name.jou >& out_$Name.log
then I use these TUI commands to define a contour and then save an image of it:
;---Defining contour surfaces
/surface/plane z0plane 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 0
/display/set/contours/surfaces z0plane ()
/display/contour velocity-magnitude 3 8
And all of them work fine except that the saved contour does not have any labels on its colormap(!!!), no numbers.
I tried to use
/display/set/color-mapmenu, but it seems like that only changes the colors of the contours.
How to fix this?
Thanks❤️March 15, 2022 at 2:07 pmRobAnsys EmployeePlease can you post one of the images? I wonder if you've got white text on a white background.
March 15, 2022 at 3:30 pmMarch 15, 2022 at 4:28 pmRobAnsys Employeecan you add
/preferences/appearance/gfc 255 0 0
at the beginning of the above and see what you get? We moved the foreground/background options into Preferences and I wonder if that's causing a problem here. I don't have R19.2 installed so can't check here.
March 15, 2022 at 4:55 pmDrAmineAnsys EmployeeCan you move to a newer version and also try using Contour Objects.
