Online Training: Tecplot 360 Basics

Learn tips, tricks and best practices from someone who has worked hundreds of technical support cases, conducted dozens of training sessions, and created 40+ Tecplot video tutorials. Known as the “Voice of Tecplot,” Account Manager, Jared McGarry, has the expertise to pinpoint how Tecplot tools can help you analyze your data more effectively.

Jared will cover these topics and then take your questions.

* Touring the Tecplot 360 User Interface.
* Loading your data.
* Exploring your data – styling slices, iso-surface, and streamlines.
* Calculating new quantities – using the equation editor and built-in functions.
* Extracting data – for dimensionality reduction.
* Line Plotting – engineering decisions are often made with simple line plots.
* Exporting your results – exporting images, animations, and videos in many different formats.


If you want to follow along during the training, we will be using the ONERA M6 Wing data, located in your Tecplot 360 installation “examples” folder.  ​Jared will be training with the Tecplot 360 April 2020 Beta, which you can access from the bottom of the Tecplot 360 Welcome Screen. We would love your feedback on this Beta, send your comments to
