ANSA automatically creates TETRA-volume meshes directly from a closed CAD surface description or from an existing surface mesh.
The meshing algorithm is very rigid and efficient, which enables it to apply a connected mesh even on complex, shaped parts. A division of mesh for a volume is only necessary in exceptional cases.
The most important tools for creation of hexa- and penta-volume meshes are:
- Definition of elements with offset, rotation and movement of areas
- Meshing from existing surface meshes (mapping)
Additional functions are continuously developed and implemented.
