Any one knows about 'Gridgen'?
Any one has experience with 'Gridgen'? It seems not to be a friendly software.

What sholud I know to get it started to work? I even don't know when to find a demo.

Define a "friendly software"?

I haven't had problems with it and have used it for a wide variety of 2-D and 3-D problems. I comes with a full manual including really simple tutorials to get started with. You should be able to get a demo-version from Pointwise, at least I know some people who have had a demo previously.

I don't think Gridgen friendly as well. GAMBIT is so much easy to use. To start with Gridgen, you'd better run some tutorials to get familiar with it.

Thats the only Grid generator i have used and i think its pretty neat. Go through a couple of tutorials and you will be through. In case you plan to buy the license then you can also attend their free 3 day training. -amol

Re: Any one knows about 'Gridgen'?
Thank you all for the information. It seems that Gridgen can be used by following its manual. But, at this moment, I prefer to manually make some mesh, to save time.
