So far, ICEM is dominant for meshing (100%) at least on this site. Got as many as '1' response to my inquiry;

Once again, I would like to know which one you have ever used so far among

ICEM, Gridgen, TrueGrid, Tiger, or GridPro,

all are listed in the "Resources-Grid generation:cfd-online"

I would like to update my inquiry:

Though cfd is a major interest of this site, as a tool for it(maybe more than that), I just want to know how many people are using separate meshing tool. Certainly, meshing has been the most time consuming part through the simulation as our models are getting more and more complicated.

I am sure that majority of cfd persons are relying on their own generation tools. But still large percentage of industry engineers are using commercial cfd packages that comes with grid generators. So, my question is: Which mesh generator are you using: (1) generator that comes with cfd package OR (2) ICEM, Gridgen, TrueGrid, Tiger, GridPro or others

Thanks for your time.

I use ANSA-TGrid combination to generate a tet-dominant mesh. Occasionally i also mesh some simple portions with hexes and prisms. the combination is very robust and i get a very good quality mesh fairly quickly. any changes to an existing model is even faster.

We use IGG/Autogrid (as a stand-alone mesh generator combined with our own flow solver).

I took a course about Gridgen and Gridpro last semester. I like them.

Last semester? An academic course or a vocational course?
