Is it possible to monitor data during a run on a surface that doesn’t coincide with the geometry or mesh interface? Is it possible to calculate expressions on this surface during the run?

We have the following two videos that show how to monitor data on a user surface in CFD-Post during a run. These surfaces are essentially point clouds so they don’t have connectivity data. Because of this it’s not possible to create an expression based on a user surface and monitor it in Solver Manager. For example, you couldn’t monitor areaAve(Temperature)@User Surface 1 in the Solver Manager. In order to monitor a quantity like areaAve, you would need to cut the geometry and have a mesh interface where you want to calculate the areaAve. User Locations in Transient Simulations https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjUNqk_wn3A Note that to create a User Surface, you can load a pre-existing .res or the .def into CFD-Post, then create a Plane, then go to File > Export > Export and select Type = Geometry only for the plane.
