Often, it is useful or necessary to take data on a surface and perform further calculations on this data using another software package. To enable you to write this type of data, CFD-VIEW has a View Object File format ("*.vof"). CFD-VIEW uses this file format to store the X, Y, and Z locations of the nodes on the surface along with the associated data that was written to the DTF (e.g. U, V, W, P, etc.)
