In DesignModeller, I have a cylindrical tank which I have specified as a fluid body.

I would like to create two baffles which come down from the ceiling of the tank. I would like to 'bore' two holes down through the top of the tank which would represent the baffles.

I have read in a separate post that creating a 'solid' region for each baffle is not optimal.

I have tried searching for a 'cut' tool or 'bore' tool but these terms return a host of unrelated things.

How do I create these baffles?

split your body at location you want to put the baffle,
then make your baffle surface by using imprint face tool,
create a multibody,
in the end use share topology,
then you have a baffle with zero thickness
