even if we can get dimentions at the CAD level, it would be nice to have an tool to get measurement inside CFD,, example: check nodes distances, planes etc..

The workaround in the meantime is to use an XY plot or export to the CFD VTFX Viewer.
During the time of CFDesign ( since V10 I believe) I was asking to add a feature to perform basics calculations from a summary instance ( a plane as example) value, as illustration: inside the decision centre a way to calculate and shows “Cv” values in valves or “k” resistance coefficients en fittings as a result of a summary plane value.
That can be achieve, a guest using script, but it would be nice to see that in the software environment directly.
This will add more value to the decision centre in CFD simulation.
To make these visible to our development team and also allow other users of the community to vote on ideas, it really is best to post in the Idea Station as Royce shared above. This way they are all seen by the team and it is far better when our users make requests than us support guys
Have you tried the app exchange store? There is an add-in up there that is purpose built for calculating Cv values. When we went to python as an API, the intent was to allow users the ability to easily code in advanced or custom functionality in setup or extraction of results. This app may be what you are looking for, although it does not place the Cv value in the decision center.

I saw it, but is my understanding it is only applicable for Cv calculation, in my case I am looking for resistance coefficients in pipe fittings such filters and strainers -we can not build app for so specific cases !-, Perhaps my idea was to be able in a direct way -in build inside the software- a dialog box will allow you to extract a (or a series of) summary value(s) and use them to solve an equation written by the user (such Darcy equation), and show the value in the “Reference” display or in a new “calculated value” inside the Decision Center.
