Default External beam model only available in 3D meshes ?

B_R_Khan is on a distinguished road

I want to see radiation + convection heat transfer on surface of 2D car. I'm using fvDOM with solar load or external beam. I realized that solar load can not be used for 2D domains so I opted for external beam but it's giving error:

External beam model only available in 3D meshes

Even though OpenFoam guide says that fvDOM can operate in all 1-D, 2-D and 3-D cases ( ) but I don't know how to integrate the effect of solar rays on 2D car.

Please help.
