It appears to be run from the Command line. Ready for that?
Then you write Bash files. Ready for that?

Rabbithole starts here: Note 3.3 foam-extend,

Writing Python scripts to drive a C++ engine. Got it.

My World-facing machine is the size of a deck of carrds. But four USB ports.
Are you familiar with Simscale ? There is a free version that has an easy to navigate U.I. for OPENFoam

I'm amazed to see how Blender has progressed over tge years.
Honestly, I cam't see how that Autodesk can still charge thousands ( and by SUBSCRIPTION so recurring every year )
I have an Alienware tower i found by the dump. It was once a "supercomputer", but now is less powerful than my phone i use to type this.
It is such an energy hog that i considered using it as a multifunction heater, but it's not even efficient at that !( Use it as a PC and heat my aprtment with it at the same time. )

I currently have a Surface tablet ( first gen ) that runs my old version of Softimage / XSI as well as Blender.
I also have Blender but have to run an old version because it just wont run anything newer than 2.7
This phone ( a secondhand Note 8) is running Prisma3D.
It's amazing how I'm actually able to model stuff on this tiny phone in my pocket.
I plan to soon get a PC that can run Blender 3.4
I would love to see CFD in Blender.
Thanjs for the video link.
