Hi zongtwi,

I created a block (i.e rack) and meshed the whole volume using "HEX" elements and "Map" type with spacing of 0.2. This block is inside a larger block (i.e room) and i'm trying to simulate flow from the rack within the room.

Do i need to do any Boolean operations? Any steps which i missed out?

Thanks for your response =)
