extracting points from a slice

Postby usman » Fri Aug 10, 2012 11:32 pm


i have created contours of pressure on a slice position. I want to extract x,y (or radius,theta) points (along with pressure values) of this surface in a e.g 100x100 ordered grid points format.

I have created a rectangular zone (100x100x1) at the same z location as the slice. To make it have the same shape and position like the slice should i
calculate the coordinates of the ordered grid in a macro using the GETFIELDVALUE and SETFIELDVALUE macro
commands. and then later on interpolate from the slice onto the ordered grid.

I am having difficulty in using the above two macro commands. Any help will be highly appreciated.
Kindly also tell how to upload some pics / word file containing snapshots of my problem.

Did you extract your slice using the interactive slice tool, or did you use the Data/Extract/Slice from Plane feature?

Also is your slice at a onstant X,Y, or Z?
