Exporting colormap data

      Hello,


       I have completed a thermal simulation in CFX, and would like to export temperature data on a planar surface as a CSV file, in order to be able to analyze/plot in a separate software. I defined a point cloud in each direction on the surface, but can not figure out how to export the data on the point cloud to a CSV file. I would be grateful if someone could point me in the correct direction. 


       


      regards,

       Rahul,


        Thanks for the pointers. However, the data I am looking for is not defined in the form of a monitor. I am looking to plot the temperature contour on a 2D surface, for which I need to define in CFX-Post multiple points (a point cloud) on the surface, followed by exporting the data on the point cloud. I have been able to define the point cloud, but following that, I can not figure out how to export the temperature data on that point cloud.


       Will the commands given in the link you shared do this for me? Is there a GUI-driven approach instead of command line?
