Fluid simulation brakes/crashes/calculates forever when the domain/fluid are placed on large coordinates. In my case I use a unit scale is metric/0.01 and my domain/fluid are at x:-57m y:-13m z:8m (meter not cm!) but you can reproduce the issue using unit scale none/1.0 and placing both objects at x:-5700 y:-1300 z:800.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
- Open Blender File fluidSimBug.blend
- Click Domain-Cube
- Click Physics-Tab
- Click Fluid > Bake
The simulation will not start or take forever (not changing from 0%).
The "fix": Set the domain-cube and the fluid-sphere to x:0 y:0 z:0 (or coordinates near the origin) and it will work. It seems that the really big coordinates brakes the fluid simulation.
