      The profile is a boundary condition, what data is missing? Profiles interpolate to the location they're used, but the data needs to exist in the file to import as there are checks against the number of data points. n

      We are importing a matrix of data, that has values assigned at x,y,z coordinates, but some of these points do not have values, of have NaNs. I guess we're wondering if Fluent can import and interpolate with these values missing? nThanks,nAlexn

      We actually tested loading a profile in with both an NaN and a blank value and fluent notified us that the data couldn't be read due to errors.Thanks,nAlexn

      It'll receive the data as is and I'm not sure it'll react well to missing values. The profile interpolation is fairly dumb so should throw an error rather than adding random values to the boundary. n

      Yes, thank you. We plan to try to interpolate our data before importing to Fluent. n
