Student needs help



I am a high school student and currently I am working on a project in Rhino. I am designing a fishing lure and soon we are planning on 3-d printing it but before that, we want to see how it flows in water. So the big question is what would be the best way to do that? After a little research we found out about the program called Grasshopper and saw a few youtube videos showing that it is possible to do fluid dynamics with this program. Any help would be greatly appreciated!



Grasshopper itself does not do Fluid Dynamics, unless you are willing and able to program it yourself. Kangaroo - which is a physics engine plug-in to GH - will do Wind Forces on meshes see here . And there was also a couple of false starts on CFD plug-ins but nothing really does what you are after at the present.
