bfc problem!

Re: bfc problem!
It might be easier to import an STL of this geometry into VR-Editor in cartesian mode. Then Earth can sort out which cells are open and which are blocked.

Re: bfc problem!
my geometry is not a rectangle,it has a little radian .can it be made in VR-Editor in cartesian mode? by the way ,3DMAX can make STL?

Re: bfc problem!
PHOENICS-VR can accept STL files in the form of 3D object-based solid models in non-binary (ASII) format.

Complicated geometries can be handled in this way by refining the grid in the first instance and by switching on PARSOL in the second, see:
