Hi, I am trying to model a 3-D room with various inlets and outlets. In the end, I would like to be able to see the pathlines of the flow, along with the flow of different types and sizes of particles I inject. Right now I am having trouble completing the 3-D geometry with the inlets/outlets.

So far, I have done the easy part in completing the solid rectangle. Now to add the inlets/outlets is where I'm stuck. All I did was draw a rectangle on 2 different surfaces and I created a surface from the sketch. Is this how I would go about doing this? When I tried to mesh it I couldn't get the mesh to work. I want to have at least one inlet/outlet on each wall and the ceiling.

All help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advanced!

There is an operation in Extrude called 'Imprint Faces'

Thanks for the reply, it helped out a lot.

Ok, so I have impinted all of the inlets and outlets that I would like to use. I just want to run this by anyone looking at this to see if what I did make sense and will work.

So here is what I have so far: Sorry, for some reason it wouldn't let me insert the picture.

I imprinted all of the inlets/outlets and selected "To Next" for Extent Type. I think this extended them into the body. By doing this, does this only cause the rectangles to be on the surface, acting like actual inlet/outlet vents? If not, how can I do this?

Imprint only affects the surface, so you're good.
