New to Realflow 4

Postby child9 » Thu Feb 10, 2011 3:27 pm

Hello. I'm a ME student and I want to design and test tubular exhaust manifolds using realflow, and am realizing that I may need to create the initial manifolds in another program. I use AutoCAD and have SolidWorks and Inventor. Those don't appear to be used with RF though.

Can anyone suggest a good simple program that will allow me to design and merge simple tube systems for flow simulation in Realflow? Thanks!

You can export solidworks models into realflow, you may need to save it as a step or dxf file in order to then import it into another 3d application like 3ds max to then export once more to realflow as an OBJ file.

Excellent. I'm sure I can get 3ds Max from somewhere, likely through the school. Thanks!
