Dear all,

I am tried of trying different grid sizes via Gmsh. Due to the sharp edges, actually I am not sure, I always got floating point exceptions. Well I check some websites to see if there are some alternatives and I got a few:

Blender + Snappyhexmesh

I was wondering which one is the most stable for OF. I need to generate mesh for channels or maybe insert some coastal structures as objects. The most important thing is where I can find a proper tutorial?

I keep on searching now. Hope to get some ideas from you. Thanks!
