what is the best way to split my stl file generated through solidworks for all the desired features (inlets, outlets, etc) If anyone has any useful tutorials to help me on my way that would be greatly appreciated, or a simpler method of meshing - I have tried blender and it is a daunting process as the program has many features. I have attached an imagine of my domain so you can see what I am working with.
(i also found that the mesh shown in blender on the surface only shows one layer of cells on the main body, i imagine that will be a problem so if anyone has any incite, it would be welcome)
Thanks in advance
Extra info, i originally planned to mesh through ansys software but limited by cell count

I was able to figure out how to use blender using a video by Jozsef Nagy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0h8MxEMQPM
