the geometry for cooling circuits in Adviser are 1D-beam elements, generated from curves/lines.
The workflow is to create the center line/curves in cad system, and export in iges format, and then import to Adviser.
See Help:
Modeling > Cooling system > Import and export >

When importing an *.igs or *.iges file, the process will import each segment of the cooling system as a centre or axis line, and apply default cooling channel dimensions. Baffles and bubblers are converted into cooling channels, and these elements will need to either be defined or added manually after import.

To import
Click  Geometry tab > Cooling System panel > Import Channels.
