Hello everyone
I'm trying to simulate droplets using "droplet source" with flow-3d, but I encountered an unexpected volume of fluid
I attached two images. As you can see here in t=0.1s there is a sphere like volume of fluid. After a moment in t=0.5s the volume change its shape due to gravity and also the first droplet appears.
I just need my droplets, not that big volume. Why does it happen and how can I fix it?
