Hi everyone,

I am trying to mesh 2D Ducted Fan and attach the following picture as you can see. The program doesnt specify the fan boundary condition, but if I erase one of domains around fan, it can specify the fan. After setting fan boundary condition, I am creating a domain and then it automatically erase fan itself.

I looking forward to helping me...

Hi Burak:

Pointwise likes the edges between domains to have a connection boundary condition. However, you should be able to override that by setting the fan condition. Because I can't tell exactly what your grid looks like from the image I suggest you contact tech support directly at
