I am a new user to simscale and have spent a few days and many core hours now creating and deleting unsuccessful attempts at a simulation run on a fan. It is time to ask for help. My ultimate goal is to optimize an electric ducted fan, but to start I would be thrilled to just succeed with a run on the fan by itself. I have a few specific questions to begin.
When I create cad geometry to import - am I supposed to create a cube(maybe you call this flow volume or bounding region?) and then subtract the rotating region from the cube? My problem here is that i have multiple solid bodies which seems to screw up the meshing process?
Am I supposed to create just the fan and the rotating region surrounding the fan? How then do I create the flow region?
Am I supposed to subtract (cut)the fan from the rotating region?
How do i rename things in the project so that they are not always solid1, solid2, etc.
I suspect all of my failures come from not bringing in the appropriate geometry from cad. When I try to run a simulation, it fails with the multi region meshing error. Also when I try to generate my mesh I get the physics can not be taken into account warning - but can not isolate anything missing in my setup procedure.
Thank you all
