32.6.8 Surface/Iso-Clip...

The Surface/Iso-Clip... menu item opens the Iso-Clip panel.



Iso-Clip Panel


The Iso-Clip panel allows you to interactively clip surfaces. The clipped surface consists of those points on the selected surface where the scalar field values are within the specified range. See Section  27.9 for details about the items below.

figure

Controls
Clip to Values of   contains a list from which you can select the scalar field to be used for clipping.

Phase   allows you to select the phase when one of the multiphase models is selected in the Multiphase Model panel.

Min, Max   set the minimum and maximum values in the clipping range. There are two ways you can set the Min and Max:
  • You can set a value interactively by moving the indicator in the dial above the Min or Max field with the left mouse button. This will also create a temporary surface in the graphics window. Using the dial allows you to preview the clipped surfaces before defining them. Note: Even though the clipped surface is displayed, it is only a temporary surface. To clip the surface, use the Clip button after deciding on the minimum and maximum values.

  • You can type in values in the Min and Max fields directly.

Clip Surface   contains a list of surfaces from which you can select the surface to be clipped. You must select a surface to activate the Clip push button.

New Surface Name   designates the name of the surface to be created. The default is the concatenation of the surface type and an integer which is the new surface ID.

Clip   creates the clipped surface. (The original surface will remain unchanged.)

Compute   computes the minimum and maximum values of the scalar field across the domain, and displays them in the Min and Max boxes.

Manage...   opens the Surfaces panel in which you can rename and delete surfaces and determine their sizes.
