How to turn off display (contour) of tubular data

    • Tan

      My model is quite big so it take time to change the values on each conditions. This is due to generating contour from tubular data so anyone know how to turn off display (contour) of tubular data ?

      Hi Tan,

      Can you please share the screen shot of which contour you planning to turn off?

      The tabular data is a time or frequency history with columns such as min, max, avg or probe results. This is not what result contours display. They display values at every node (and averaged between nodes) for the given time step,or frequency, or mode. A result contour can only affect display when you select the object in the Outline. What are these "conditions" you refer? If they are different loads/constraints in the analysis, then the result display doesn't affect recomputing a new analysis, although when results are evaluated it can take a little extra time. This is not due to display, but you can always right click to supress the result object before running analysis. You could also scope the result to a limited set of bodies, faces, etc... to only the interested zone to make display quicker when you do finally select the result object. Even if the result is scoped to all bodies you can hide some bodies under the Geometry section in the Outline, or by selecting in the model viewer before selecting the result object.
