How do I Probe to Create Time Series Plot at a given set of coordinates?
Use Tecplot’s macro language to precisely define the point to probe.
The commands are as follow:
- Prompt for the (X, Y, Z) coordinates of the point to probe:
$!PROMPTFORTEXTSTRING |xPosition| INSTRUCTIONS = "Enter X position of the probe."
Or define them directly in the macro:
$!VARSET |xPosition|= 0.1
- Pass these coordinates to the Probe to Create Time Series Plot macro command:
$!EXTENDEDCOMMAND COMMANDPROCESSORID = 'Time Series Plot' COMMAND = 'Command = CreatePlot StrandID = 1 XPos = |xPosition| YPos = |yPosition| ZPos = |zPosition|'
You may need to change the StrandID argument from the command above, depending on your dataset.
