Hi all,

I have recently started working on AVL FIRE and while creating the volume mesh when I give cell size less than 5E-06 m, the generator uses 100 % of CPU. I am very much shocked that when it meshes with the 5E-06 m cell size the volume mesh takes only 15 minutes and the generated volume mesh doesn't look fine at all.
I found a solution to reduce the number of threads while doing volume mesh but unfortunately i can't even find the settings.cfg file in the installed directory. I don't know how do I not let this generator occupy all the processors available.

Please comment If you have got any possible solution for this.

Thank you
