FloWorks Solver stuck
After the solver generates and stores the mesh, it gets stuck during the "collecting surface goals" step. This step is part of "preparing data for calculation." I have successfully run FloWorks before, but now there is no progress after hours of waiting. Has anyone else had this problem?

Hi Daniel, Maybe you can try my following advice: 1. suppress your surface goal and start your EFD solver again to confirm your problem. 2. refine your surface mesh to confirm your mesh if resolved well.

Hi Daniel,

I had the same problem with EFD.V5. What kind of problem do you want to simulate?

Re: FloWorks Solver stuck
I use EFD.Lab. No problems here.

Cheers Nick
