I'm looking for an open-source or inexpensive surface meshing program for a panel code. The code should have the ability to read CAD geometry. Any suggestions? Icem-CFD is great, but costs about 10 times as much as a panel code solver!

AMI (www.am-inc.com) offers Surfgen, a mesh generator designed specifically for their VSAERO and VSAEROhybrid panel methods. I don't think it's nearly as expensive the software you've already looked at.

Yes, that looks like an attractive option. The other promising one I'm trying out is SurfaceWorks from AeroHydro, which now exports directly to pmarc/cmarc format, which is really what I was after.
