Hey everyone,
I am rather new to CFD, but I have done some of the basic tutorials. I am trying to mesh the front nose cone of a formula 1 car I made in solidworks. I have no problem meshing the wing itself, but I am not sure how to go about volume meshing the exterior. I have made a box using surfaces in solidworks to enclose it, but what is the optimal way to mesh this using the Ansys mesher? I have tried using inflation by following this tutorial:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhkHa...ure=plpp_video . However, it seems that the part he is using is one solid part as to where my model has 7 different parts. When I go to select the Boundary for the inflation I cannot select all the surface and deselect the exterior surfaces. Below is two pictures which will probably explain things a little further.

A way to do volume meshing is to use the "Enclosure" tool in ANSYS ICEM and then "Inflate"... There is a "User Define Geometry" option...
