MeshWorks has a powerful CAE meshing engine that allows users to create 2D and 3D meshes rapidly from complex CAD data
Highly automated meshing functions available allow users to create exceptional quality meshes with minimal user intervention in the shortest time possible, with minimal to virtually no CAD clean-up
Template based meshing allows users to set-up templates for feature recognition, mesh size requirements and quality criteria
Highly automated mesh quality improvement functions robotically correct meshes to meet user specified quality templates and constraint criteria
Wide variety of CAD interfaces are supported to import geometries from all well known CAD packages and generic formats such as STEP & Parasolid
Even though CAD clean-up requirement is minimal to nil, MeshWorks offers a CAD engine with an extensive set of CAD functions for curve, surface and solid editing and manipulation
Batch meshing capability allows users to assign meshing templates to entire model assemblies and mesh them in a batch mode across multiple processors – either on workstations or in the HPC environment
The automated tria mesher generates meshes that meet element quality requirements and mesh flow conditions in regular regions and special regions such as fillets, holes etc. Structural & CFD meshes are generated efficiently with flexibility of using several control parameters to generate meshes to suit the CAE engineers’ specialized requirements
Quad Dominant Meshing
The automated quad dominant mesher generates quad dominant meshes with minimal triangles meeting element quality requirements, providing good mesh flow, meeting specialized meshing requirements around holes, fillets, flanges, beads etc. and excellent control over element size requirements
A set of automated and powerful interactive meshing functions allow users to create mid-plane meshes of complex plastic and casting parts with ribs and other intersecting features. Variable thicknesses as driven by the CAD geometry are automatically assigned to the mesh.
MeshWorks provides several methods for getting tetrahedral mesh. Tetra mesh can be controlled by a variety of factors such as gradation factor, layered tetra mesh, growth rate etc.
The automated cartesian hexa mesher allows users to create 100% hexa meshes of complex parts that have a high volume to surface ratio (‘chunky’ parts). The extruded hex mesher can rapidly generate hex dominant meshes for parts whose features are aligned in a specific direction. The ‘thin-wall-hex-mesher’ can rapidly convert a mid-plane quad dominant mesh to a hex-dominant mesh. Users can combine all of the hex mesher functions to generate a geometry hugging hex dominant mesh with minimal number of penta elements.

A patented parametrization methodology generates parametric meshes during the meshing process itself. The parametrization is driven by CAD features and user provided rules & templates.
The mesh generated is highly associative to the CAD geometry. This allows for highly automated update of the mesh as and when the CAD geometry changes and viz versa.
Meshing templates corresponding to different attributes such as stress/durability, stiffness/NVH etc. can be assigned to the CAD data. As a result meshes corresponding to all the different attributes can be generated from one single model eliminating the need for duplicated effort.
