I am having trouble creating a fluid volume around an object in design modeller. In the past, for more simple objects, I have drawn a primitive box and changed its properties to fluid. My current model has primitive parts in it already, and this results in them simply merging with the box when I draw it.

Is there an alternative way of creating the fluid volume, or keeping the other primitive objects separate?

I have tried Tools>Enclosure, but only get an error message. (Error: Boolean operation failed)

Thanks for any help!

freeze the primitive objects before creating the outer box.

you must use user-defined enclosure.

Make a far-field body (as solid), put a hole in it in modelling.

then using enclosure's User-Defined option, select the new solid body that you just created.

Then Generate....

Before doing these steps, you must freeze your original model.

Hope you will be able to see your required geometry.
