Hi all,

Some question to creators of this topic, who did some magnificent job:
I am doing quite the same, meaning trying to run a CFD for PERRINN model for my MSc. Even got approval to use some dedicated workstation at work for this process.

Yet, I am having trouble simplifying geometry. Especially sidepods and curvature around side intakes is causing a lot of trouble, even when I trie to merge it all. SpaceClaim and Fluent + Inventor in use and can't figure aut how to go around it, besides redrawing whole model.
Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

We also had a lot of issues cleaning the car up for CFD. It just takes time to get to a useable state.
