Hey,

FloeFD is still confusing me sometimes.

As a geometry input i have the fluid volume.
FloeFD prompt me to at some lids for making the volume waterproof. But it didnt worked.

How can I work with the fluid volume?

Best regars

Hi TW,

no, FLOEFD is for designers and designers usually don't design the fluid volume but the actual positive model. So no need to extract the fluid volume, you can work with the positive. It helps much better to understand the model than working on the inverted (negative) model.

If you don't have a positive model, you should subtract the fluid model from a block.
The lids are necessary to make a positive part watertight. FLOEFD then automatically recognizes the interior fluid volume as the empty space.

Regards,
Boris
