SW2018 Flow is ignoring a part in assembly.

Hello to all!

Long time SW user, first time using this forum.  I work with a lot of imported geometry from contract mfgrs and historically this was the issue (coworkers dont always import correctly as they dont use Flow).  Part was re-imported from native, Flow run on only part and meshed & solved as expected, inserted into assy with other imported parts (that work perfectly), and Flow mesh & solver ignore part.  Part is single solid with no surfaces.  Refining mesh doesn’t seem to help.  Adding control planes doesn't help.  Adding a local mesh to only part forces it to create a mesh, but solver still ignores (looks like mesh is only fluid).  I'm running out of ideas; any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks

Kevin
