Image Aspect Ratio Scaling

      I currently have a solution that has an aspect ratio of 100:1. I wanted to know if there is a way to view the same solution in fluent (without running a new simulation on a smaller geometry) with an aspect ratio close to 10:1 or 1:1. I tried autoscaling and fitting my mesh to window, but aspect ratio is still too large. Is it possible to scale an image in one direction while preserving the solution within fluent?

      If you scale the domain in Fluent you can stretch/compress the mesh. However that can cause problems with the cell quality. If you do scale the domain having run a model you can continue to iterate, that will use the previous solution as a starting point. You can't just scale the model and expect the solver to recompute the solution without running.
