Patis is on a distinguished road
I've got a summer project to enable my professor's modeling code to be able to work on irregular surfaces. Right now it works only on cubes such that he can say there's a wall here and here. The code is a lattice boltzmann solver.

My line of thought was to try to transform a mesh into computational space ie a cube, in order to easily incorporate it into his code since it would all be pre or post processing changes. To do that I was going to make models in Solidworks then export it to mesh it and perform the operation. The problem is that I've so far been unable to understand the various file formats that solidworks saves and therefore been unable to even start the process of trying to code a transformation.

The other train of thought is to code the ability for his program to directly read a mesh file so that I wouldn't have to transform it.

The file formats I've been playing with are .iges and .msh and I've created meshes in Gambit and in Matlab (through iges2matlab).

I'm hoping that someone has some words of wisdom to put me on the right track because it's feeling hopeless right now.
