New release: cfMesh-1.1
Creative Fields is proud to announce the v1.1 release of cfMesh.
The major focus of the release was on implementing important new features, from which the most important ones are:
- boundary layer optimisation,
- anisotropic meshing,
- polyhedral meshing workflow,
- possibility to stop and restart the meshing process,
all in order to further improve mesh quality and allow more control to the user.
With this release, users will benefit from:
- Boundary layer optimisation procedure – improves quality and stability when many layers are required. The feature allows you to successfully generate meshes with many layers for complex geometries.
2. Anisotropic meshing – regions consisting of anisotropic cells are defined via box and plane primitives.
3. Workflow controller – allows the user to interrupt the meshing process and write out intermediate meshes. It is possible to restart from the latest saved step. The important purpose of the feature is to allow user notice problems early in the meshing process
4. Meshing workflow generating arbitrary polyhedral cells.
The user guide and the tutorials are available in the download packages.
The source code, the installation packages for 64-bit Linux and the installation package for 64-bit Windows are available at: SourceForge.net. The access to the online git repository is available here: git clone git://git.code.sf.net/p/cfmesh/code cfMesh.
