Also, if you have any example about this could you please send it to me ?

Hi,

for examples, check out the tutorials. There are two sets of them - one with ElmerGUI (to be found on the documentation page: https://www.csc.fi/web/elmer/documentation) and one without GUI (the manual is here, the files are on the documentation page).
I am no machine expert - you will probably want to model heat transfer between your machine and the surrounding air? In that case, just define a heat transfer coefficient and an external temperature for the outer boundaries of your machine.

HTH,
Matthias
