Two issues have been crushing my dreams of doing literally anything related to fluid dynamics.
I am following along with this tutorial.
However, at the 2:00 mark, the instructor very casually turns an object into the fluid, but when I do exactly the same thing, nothing happens. I even went into Cache and gave the cache folder a specific folder since I recalled something about that from prior training.
What's killing me is that I have had fluid working, but I don't know what I have done - the specific steps I've taken - to turn this from object into fluid.
The second problem is one that has plagued me literally since the start of my looking into this: I can never actually see inside the region fluid-dynamics region. It's always a damned cube. I figured out I could apply a wireframe modifier to it just to see inside (in that project, I got fluid to work... somehow). But when I went to render, it was still a cube.
Anyway, if you have guidance, I would love it. I'm tired of banging my head against a wall. Here is the blend file.
