different x,y,z values for profile export from fluent

      Hello,

      I am just wondering why the values for x,y,z vary in a profile export directly from Fluent (see photo for example). Which are more accurate?

      Thanks,

      Alex

      Fluent reads a profile that you supply and then interpolates to cell face centroids. Once you export, you get this interpolated profile. n

      Thank you! So if we were going to use this profile as a boundary to base other data off of, that will be imported back into fluent, which are better to use? n

      Good question. I'd say use Fluent's x, y and z locations as this will minimize interpolation errors. n

      Thanks! Just to clarify those values would be the ones on the right, correct?n

      yes, those are face cell centroids where data will be interpolatedn
