Meshing is an integral part of the computer-aided engineering (CAE) simulation process. The mesh influences the accuracy, convergence and speed of the solution. Furthermore, the time it takes to create a mesh model is often a significant portion of the time it takes to get results from a CAE solution. Therefore, the better and more automated the meshing tools, the better the solution.

From easy, automatic meshing, to a highly crafted mesh, ANSYS, provides the ultimate solution. Powerful automation capabilities ease the initial meshing of a new geometry by keying off physics preferences and using smart defaults so that a mesh can be obtained upon first try. Additionally, users are able to update immediately to a parameter change, making the handoff from CAD to CAE seamless and aiding in up-front design.

Once the best design is found, meshing technologies from ANSYS provide the flexibility to produce meshes that range in complexity from a pure hex mesh to highly detailed hybrid meshes; users can put the right mesh in the right place and ensure that a simulation will accurately validate the physical model.
