Data Contour

You can select a Data Contour with the dropdown menu data contour on the Legend pane. The available Data Contour options are determined by the chosen Result Type, as listed in this topic below. Note that:

  1. You can visualize the contour of a plane by creating a Contour Plane with the Show Data on Plane b_contour plane_XZ options from the Interpret menu.
  2. All Data Contour results can be plotted and exported. Select the Graph Data b_graph data option or the Graph Data (Multiple Panes) b_graph multiple panes option from the Interpret menu, the selected Data Contour of the Result Type will be plotted in a new tab. To further customize the chart, see the Chart Options topic for details.
