Grid generator for structured grids

I am working with a Finite Volume, one-block CFD-solver using structured grids. I'm looking for a grid generator with a Graphical User Interface (GUI) and I wonder if anyone have any experience with this kind of grid generators? Some of my "demands" for the grid generator are that

- the GUI is easy to learn/easy to use, - it can import/export CAD geometry, - it can be used on most UNIX-plattforms, - it can generate "large" grids (e.g. over 1 mill points).

Does anyone know which (commercial or noncommercial) grid generator is the best for this purpose (if there is any)??

Thank You for Your time

To my knowledge the best grid generator for structured meshes is Gridpro. It makes grids of extreme high quality. See

Our MegaCads (Mulitblock-Elliptic-Grid-Generation-And-CAD-System) can handle complex structured grid generation tasks. We are currently making FREE-MegaCads-Executables available to non-MEGAFLOW partners. To get some info about it, look at
