    Someone please tell me, if cyclic symmetry is possible with Solidworks Flow Simulation.

      While you can define rotating regions in Flow Simulation, you currently cannot define cyclical symmetry in Flow. Only a plane parallel to the global axes can be used to define symmetry. If you get enough other users to submit enhancement requests to SolidWorks on the same topic, maybe it will show up in a later version!

      Thanks for reading!

    Split and rotational symmetry! Nice job there.

    My name is George and I’m a PhD in technical physics, Sweden.

    I just want to start of with saying thanks for a great post!

    I’m having problems applying circular symmetry (never succeeded actually). I have a symmetric piece of a flywheel, much like your model. When I’m supposed to select the axis of revolution SW doesn’t register my pick. Do you happen to know why?

    Best Regards,
