Every 6 months, Distene delivers a new release of MeshGems. Highlights of MeshGems 2.8 are the following:
MeshGems in general:
– New features
- Support of robust quadratic meshing for all the MeshGems components, that is throughout the whole meshing process from surface to volume and for all the supported elements.
- New Template delivered in the MeshGems distribution as part of an effort to help developers saving time and setting up a workflow, based on MeshGems-CADSurf, MeshGems-Cleaner and MeshGems-Tetra. This aims at generating a tetrahedral volume mesh out of a CAD file and which is applicable for dirty/noisy geometries. This workflow was designed based on our experience and we hope it will help maximizing the success rate of your meshing process.
– New Features
- Capability to generate a surface mesh out of a “hybrid CAD”, which is a geometry made of a combination of:
- analytical CAD entities (whose geometries are defined by analytical functions, such as for example NURBS), and
- discrete CAD entities (whose geometries are defined by a tesselation, in other words, a set of triangles).
- Patch independent correction operations on wires.
- Mesh quality improvement in the Discrete surface meshing workflow
- Increased meshing robustness
- Better handling of complex overlaps in the cleaning process (MeshGems-Cleaner)
– New Features
- Volume proximity available also in MeshGems-Tetra_HPC. We are involved in a continuous process to include all the available options of MeshGems-Tetra into MeshGems-Tetra_HPC.
- Sub-domains provided as input in Meshgems-Tetra and MeshGems-Tetra_HPC for a smoother integration into your CAE chain.
- Min/max edge length enforcement in MeshGems-Tetra_HPC.
- Performance enhancements in
- Geometry accuracy improvements in MeshGems-Hexa
- Quality improvements of boundary layer generation in MeshGems-Hybrid
