Hi Gotosky,

CAD solids are only required by the mesher and basically ensure that the domain comprises surfaces which enclose a volume (i.e. no gaps exist).

Hi, Robin:

Thanks. If there is van in the domain. Can I use B-Rep.

Yes, but the van has to be a cutout solid from a volumetric region that surrounds it. The region that surrounds it can also be a B-rep (white), or a blue (parametric I think?) solid.
