Hey,

I use ICEM CFD and my problem is a 3D simulation of a mill (see: geometry - mill). I know how to simulate it but I want to use the periodicity because the mill is rotationally symmetric?!
Therefore, I have some questions.

1.) Is it possible to use the periodicity in my case?
I donīt know where to set the periodic planes.

2.) Which settings do I have to use?
I read something about the periodicity and blocking -> edit block -> periodic vertices but I donīt know how to use it rightly.

Thank you very much for your answers.

I do not see the periodicity in this model.

No, a screw is not periodic.
