Hello to all!
Could anybody suggest good meshing software for 64-bit system?
What I actually need is some separate software like Gambit to use it for Fluent. I now have Fluent 6.3 32-bit and Gambit 32-bit. But want to move to Fluent 6.3 64-bit in order to solve complex 3D flows. But Gambit for 64-bit systems dosn't exist. Indeed I can create mesh in Gambit 32-bit but with complex 3D geometry it goes not well.
So, I'm searching for substitution of Gambit.

Thanks in advance!

Sure there is Gambit for 64 bits!
A good alternative will be ICEM-CFD or Pointwise.

-mAx- will become famous soon enough
Gambit 64bit exists only for unix-linux architecture

Probably (I'm not sure about that, I'm a Linux user since Vista), anyway there is no difference between the 64 and the 32 bits version. I would expect the 64 bits to have extended precision or at least double precision. From my experience Gambit is single precision only.

Also Gambit seems to be on his dead bed, since Ansys is not interested in creating a new version. Better use ICEM-CFD if you need a 64 bits mesh generator.

Thanks a lot!
I think I'll try ANSYS ICEM.
