Default thin extrusion meshing
Posts: n/a
Hi I'd like to know your opinion on what is currently the best tool for meshing thin extrusions: I am modelling a double glazed window and its frame in 3D. The extrusion profile of the frame is fairly complex; it's made up of 2 mm thick aluminium. I'd like to mesh this profile anisotropicaly so that I don't end up with 10 billion cells. It becomes tricky with the fact that there are quite a few different materials in a window, and there are about 100 different interfaces between the different glass/frame materials and the air. The set up of all these interfaces is quite painful. Is there a tool around that could simplify the meshing process of this kind of geometry by offering reasonably anisotropic meshing techniques and automatic interface recognition? Thanks
