New to Tecplot RS version 2012 R3: RS variables simulator files added for: CHEARS, CMG, Eclipse/SLB, Sensor, and VIP/Nexus.
It is no longer necessary to manually copy and name rsvariables.txt files to use them with Tecplot RS. The RS Variables files include variable renaming and aliasing rules along with certain plot styles.
The first time you run Tecplot RS, you’ll be asked to choose a configuration file corresponding to the simulator you use. You can switch to a different file — without restarting Tecplot RS — via the Change button in the Variables tab of the Plot Options dialog:
Options > Plot Options > Variables tab > Change button in RS Variables section (in the lower-right part of the dialog)
You can switch to a different file with a macro call. This is useful if you work with multiple simulators.
For those of you who are used to using RS Variables files in the manual way, you won’t see any change. You may still use your own rsvariables.txt file. Your own RS Variables will show up on the RS Variables dialog as “User Defined”.
