Hi,

Not any easy question to answer. It can been 2-3 minutes for a simple model and upto weeks for a very complex model. The only real answer is faster than a structured mesh!

Regards

David

Hi,

Its very hard to say. If you just look at pure computing power ICEM CFD TETRA meshes about 4000-5000 cells a second on a 1GHZ PC. But prior to that there is some time spent by the user which will depend on their skill and CAD data.

Cheers

David
