solidworks tutorial-flowxpress

Please note that this is an advanced tutorial which means I don’t cover basic skills here – like creating a sketch or drawing a line – so if you are a beginner then I suggest you to work on the drone project. That is a solidworks 3d modeling project which I described the designing process from the very beginning to advanced  skills.

And the summary of this tutorial:

This simple tutorial is designed to show you the process of solidworks floxpress. The part that we use here is a simple part because our main goal is the process of floxpress. First you must model the following part .

the part will be created in two simple steps of extrdue & loft.

but the model is not ready for flow analysis. Floxpress can only process on a closed environment with a defined inlet and outlet so we add these caps in assembly.

I did it too, now or part is a closed chamber. In order to see the lids and getting a better sight of flow later on, we need to transparent the part. So right click on main part and select appearance .

This was a very simple flow analysis. You can examine the flow in much more complicated parts like valves too the process is the same.
