I've created a part in SolidWorks, and I would like to import it to the DesignModeler for Fluent Analysis.
DesignModeler has an issue with surfaces and the whole body is a surface.
How do i fix this?
Thank you very much guys,
This Forum is awesome!

Solidworks is capable of making a solid... But I have not used SW since 2008 and I am not enough of a Solidworks expert to tell you what you are doing wrong.
Once in DM, you can use the "Sew" tool to sew surfaces together into a Solid. It is probably not as good as figuring out your Solidworks issue, but it will get you going.
I am guessing that if your SW model is surfaces in SW, you could probably find an equivalent command to turn that into a solid.
