I would like to calculate the values of stress along any arbitrary directions inside my model. However, for some angles, I cannot get a continuous curve, and I don’t know why. I’m uploading the two vtu. files as well as the related state file. As can be seen in the state file and also the two png. files, I can get a continuous stress curve on a 45-degree plane with respect to the x axis when I’m interested in calculating the stress values along a line oriented at 0-degree with respect to this plane (The blue curve). However, for the same plane, I cannot get a continuous curve along a line oriented at 45 degrees on this plane (The red curve). Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

Thank you in advance!
With best regards,
The unstructured grid you uploaded is composed of Tri-Quadratic-Hexahedrons. Unfortunately this cell type might not be supported by Calculator or Plot Over Line filter or both. You should post this as a new issue over at here:
A workaround is to run the Tetrahedralize filter on the first grid like seen in the attached state file.

Thank you for your solution. However, I can’t see any plots when I load the attached state. I faced the attached error. Could you help me with this please?
It might be need to choose the Search files under specified directory under Load State Data File Options when loading the state file.
I tried all three possible options under “Load State Data File Options”. However, I still have the same problem. For some reason, I cannot see the number 319 in front of UC_with_inclusion and UC_with_inclusion_incl files. (In the file that I attached before I had this number in front of them). For this reason, I cannot see the main structure when I try to make it visible. Moreover, when I go to the filter calculator1, I see Cauchy45XY_tri (?), which seems it has not been defined.
But, I followed what you did in creating a tetrahedralize filter and so on, and fortunately I could get continuous curves. It’s a really quick solution, and I really appreciate you. However, I will propose this problem under a new issue as you have suggested because it would be nice if we could solve this problem for Tri-Quadratic-Hexahedron elements, too.
With best regards,
