Gridgen: mesh quality
Hi there,

is there a way to ensure that a mesh in Gridgen has a given quality? Perhaps a function to color all cells that have angles below a minimal angle?

Thanks for responses!

If you really just want to see cells that are below or above a certain threshold, use the Display menu in Examine and do two things: 1) Set the min and max values to your thresholds. 2) Use the "Show" buttons to tell it to only display cells that are above or below range, depending on what you want to see. Also note that you get a tally of cells in the blackboard.
