Generating a high-quality mesh is a critical task for CAE users. It allows for a detailed view of the design and provides important insights. To achieve a good mesh, the underlying geometry must be analyzed, and the best quality mesh should be applied. A mesh that meets the objective is the right choice for the given scenario. It’s important to use a mesh that is of reasonable quality and tailored to the specific problem to ensure the solver produces accurate results.

MeshWorks features a powerful CAE meshing engine that enables users to rapidly generate 2D and 3D meshes from intricate CAD data, including Tetra, Sheet Metal, Mid-plane, and Hexa. With highly automated meshing functions, users can produce high-quality meshes with minimal intervention and in the shortest possible time, without the need for extensive CAD clean-up. The system also offers template-based meshing, allowing users to set up templates for feature recognition, mesh size requirements, and quality criteria. Additionally, MeshWorks provides automated mesh quality improvement functions, ensuring meshes meet user-specified quality templates and constraint criteria.

MeshWorks supports a wide range of CAD interfaces, enabling users to import geometries from popular CAD packages and generic formats like STEP and Para solid. MeshWorks also includes a comprehensive set of CAD functions for curve, surface, and solid editing and manipulation. Additionally, the system provides batch meshing capability, allowing users to assign meshing templates to entire model assemblies and mesh them in a batch mode across multiple processors – on workstations or in the HPC environment.

The AI/ML based feature recognition engine in MeshWorks produces higher geometric accuracy. The system also offers template-driven meshing, enabling enormous mesh control for features such as fillets, tubes, chamfers, and machined faces. Additionally, MeshWorks includes powerful feature removal and suppression tools, which allow users to create simplified meshes for specific CAE workflows by removing features like fillets, ribs, and bosses. Furthermore, MeshWorks boasts the widest range of hex meshing functions, including auto-cartesian-hex mesher and parametric extrusion hex mesher.
