Plot contours at specific locations

Basically, you need to first create a plane, and then color the plane by your desired variable. Methods to create a plane include:

Plane (you can specify three point, or one point and a normal vector), Isosurface (where you can specify x, y or z values), user surface or surface group. After constructing your surface, color it by variable, and choose the variable you would like to plot. Finally, you may toggle your view to face normal to the plane, and then turn of all the 3D faces and wireframe that might disturb your view. Then you can take a snapshot of the contour. Example given below:

Isosurface → variable z → Color by velocity → Turn off the walls and outlets and wireframe
