Mesh Generation
 
Could anyone please let me know which code/software is the best for STRUCTURED/MultiBlock Grid Generation? It has to be able to do both structured (no FE please) and MultiBlock grids.

Gambit, GridGen, ...?? I am not sure about CAD softwares, like Pro/Engineering, is it able to generate volume mesh as well as design works?

Any advice would be helpful.

The first question that you should ask yourself is: How much money do I have available for a grid generation software?

There are of course many nice codes, but they will cost you as much as a reasonable car.

Usually one is more interested in the best code, that one can afford.

I completely agree with Tom.

And believe me: Gambit is not always so good...and its CAD features are crummy.

From own experience Gridgen... but the cost might be an issue.
