      Sometimes it becomes useful to define a plane or surface with a predefined number of points on it. For example, if you want to release a certain set of DPM particle parcels instead of relying on the number of grid points on that surface.nnSteps to create a plane with a specified number of points:nn-Display the surface that you want to use as the basen-Select Post processing>>Create>>Planen-Click on Select Pointsn-Select three points on the surface with right-mouse-bottonn-Click on Plane Tool if needed. The plane tool will be snapped on the 3 points.n-Select Bounded and Sample pointsn-Select large number for Edge 1 and Edge 2. If you select 100 by 100 you will have 100*100 points on the plane. Since it is bounded, you will have only those points that fall within the domain. You may have to move the plane tool slightly into the domain.n-click on Createn
