need help: beginner
Hey all!

I am a beginner to CFD and needed some help.
For my first task, I have to run a CFD on a wing.

I use Solidworks to create geometry and Patran as mesh generator.
I intend to use FLUENT as the mesh solver.

I learnt that FLUENT can accept meshed files from patran in the neutral file format.

Could you please guide me on creating the mesh in Patran?
Do I just have to create a surface mesh over the wing or make a geometry enclosing the wing and then volume mesh the entire space?
