This is a beginner's question - I have started to look at Flow3d recently. It appears that the software has limited options for creating geometry. I understand third party software are used for creating complex geometry.

At the moment, I am trying to simulate flow through a spillway. I am looking for recommendation as to what software/tool would be most suitable for the purpose.

Thanks in advance.

Hi I have attended some flow3D seminars and have seen people doing spillway analysis. They have used solidworks for the geometry.

I think whatever program you choose make sure they can output the format "stl" that is compatible with flow3D.

I would recommend using Solidworks for creating geometry.

Hope this helps.
