monish is on a distinguished road
i am currently working on a project "flow analysis inside an engine cylinder". i have a model of the intake port in the .stl format (it is a surface mesh) and i need to convert it into a volume mesh to perform a cfd analysis. can someone tell me how i can do this and which software do i need to use to obtain the volume mesh.

thanks
