Gridgen features include:
- Structured (mapped quad and hex), unstructured (Delaunay tri and tet), and hybrid (prism-tet, hex-pyramid-tet, etc.) meshing.
- Geometry modeling that includes neutral (IGES & STEP), native (Pro/E, CATIA, & UG), and de facto standard (STL) import, geometry creation including intersections, solid modeling, and IGES export.
- Native interfaces to CFD solvers such as FLUENT, STAR-CD, ANSYS CFX, CFD++, and Cobalt as well as neutral formats such as CGNS
- Runs on Windows (Intel and AMD), Linux (Intel and AMD), Mac, and Unix
- Has a Tcl-based scripting language called GridgenGlyph that can automate CFD meshing
