I think you should be able to do it with student license. 


You can think of using only 2D instead of 3D. 


Please start with sketch. Then created the geometry 2D or 3D in SpaceClaim. 


Once you create the geometry, then we can check. 


Then you can create a new thread under Thermodynamics Category for further help.
