4.12.8 Data Explorer Files

Select Data Explorer under File Typeand choose the surface(s) for which you want to write data in the Surfaces list. If no surfaces are selected, the entire domain is exported. Also specify the scalars you want in the Functions to Write list.


When you are exporting data for Data Explorer, EnSight Case Gold, or I-deas Universal and the reference zone is not a stationary zone, the data in the velocity fields is exported by default as velocities relative to the motion specification of that zone. This data is always exported, even if you do not choose to export any scalars. Any velocities that you select to export as scalars in the Functions to Write list (e.g., X Velocity, Y Velocity, Radial Velocity, etc.) are exported as absolute velocities. For all other types of exported files, the velocities exported by default are absolute velocities.

You have the option of exporting data at specified intervals during the calculation through the Solver/Execute Commands... menu option. See Section  4.12.18 for the complete details.

Click the Write... button to save the file, using the Select File dialog box. A single file (e.g., file.dx) is exported, containing coordinate, connectivity, velocity, and specified function data.
