We are a new Formula Student Team and we were wondering how to build the mesh (in Fluent) of any aerodynamic piece of the car. The logic would say it is better a structured mesh but we've talked about it with a university teacher and recommend us to do an unstructured mesh. It this cases, which would be the best option and if it is the structured, how can a mesh be structured in 3D?

generally a structured mesh is best for simpler models, where you can align the mesh with the direction of the flow. For the flow around a Formula car with irregular shapes and where you can expect vortices, etc., it might be easier to go with an unstructured mesh.
We have a course in the Ansys Innovation Space that goes through the steps of setting up such simulation Aerodynamics of an FSAE Car - ANSYS Innovation Courses
I hope this helps! and good luck to your team
