Hello, I am quite new in ScFlow (Cradle) software. I would like to simulate rotating shaft lubrication (see extracted fluid region in attach). I have imported shaft (and end cap and bolt), then have extracted fluid domain,
1) there are a lot of faces and I would like to merge them.
2) I would like to split domain in location of red line (V1: fix and V2:rotates) to use discontinues mesh analysis. I didnt find documents that could help me.
Can somebody give a tip/support please?

Dear Reza,

In the Kicker, there is a blue book which consist all information that you need to know about Cradle. If you want to analyze rotating parts, you should check "Training 3" which is under the Operation section. Also you dont need to merge these faces, they are not a problem for Cradle. You can use Cross Section (Solid) command to split solids with axis, after that you can unite other solids back. It is easy in this way.

I hope it helps you.
