Hello everyone, I am having a bit of trouble with a current simulation and hoping you could help me.

The simulation, as shown in the pictures, contains a dual arm body within a hexagonal enclosure. The body will rotate at high velocity within the enclosure. My objective is to show the air streamlines within the enclosure as the body is spinning. The reason for this is to ensure that there will be no issue between the airflow caused by the spinning body and the enclosure.

The model is set up with a turbulent model and the body set to rotate at approximately 200m/s. Since the body is the moving part I have assigned all sides of the enclosure as walls.

In CFD-Post: I have setup a plane and attempted to show streamlines coming from this plane. However the streamlines shown are a mess. This is probably because I have specified a starting point (the plane) and the streamlines are bouncing off the walls. What I want (if possible) is to show streamlines change as the body spins.
