Hi all,

I am a student working on an open-source CFD solver called SPHysics (, see Contributors section for more info about my work). For a conference in June I am preparing an add-on to the code that should allow the use of CAD files for this solver. So I would like to have an example and I thought it would be nice to simulate a centrifugal pump. However since I myself do not have much knowledge about CAD I am looking for some help. To be more specific, I'm looking for a freely accessible 3D Model. I found some on the internet but they all only contain the hull, which of course lacks the impeller, the piece I'm most interested in. I would be very grateful if anybody could point me to a resource or maybe even send me a model.

Best regards,
