CM2 HexaMesh Iso

current version: 5.2.0 (May 2022)

Delaunay Solid Isotropic Hex-Dominant Mesh Generator

CM2 HexaMesh Iso is our Delaunay solid isotropic hex-dominant mesh generator for your FEA (Finite Element Analysis) applications. It generates solid elements (as good as possible) respecting user-defined constraints: outer and inner boundary faces, specific embedded faces, edges and nodes, local mesh sizes (isotropic), maximum size gradations and background mesh.

CM2 HexaMesh Iso is a true Delaunay hex-dominant mesh generator respecting the user-defined boundaries and intern embedded faces, edges and nodes.
Generated meshes are conformal.

CM2 HexaMesh Iso generates a high ratio of hexahedrons (bricks) and wedges. Some pyramids and tetrahedrons are also usually required.

CM2 HexaMesh Iso accepts all-quad, all-triangle or hybrid boundary meshes (extern or embedded).

High-order elements, for instance quadratic 10-node tetrahedrons, 14-node pyramids, 18-node prisms and 26/27-node bricks, can be generated with the help of CM2 MeshTools SDK core functions (provided free of charge with all licenses).

Complementary Products

CM2 SurfMesh® Q4

CM2 SurfMesh Q4 is the CAD surface (B-Rep, IGES, STEP) all-quad / quad-dominant mesh generator from the CM2 MeshTools SDK (partially based on the OpenCascade kernel). CM2 SurfMesh Q4 can generate the input surface mesh for CM2 HexaMesh Iso.

CM2 SurfRemesh® Q4

CM2 SurfRemesh Q4 is the surface all-quad/quad-dominant remesher from the CM2 MeshTools SDK. The initial surface is defined by an all-triangle mesh (STL-mesh, deformed mesh, mesh too coarse or too fine…)
CM2 SurfRemesh Q4 can generate the input surface mesh for CM2 HexaMesh Iso.

CM2 TetraMesh® Iso

CM2 TetraMesh Iso is the Delaunay solid isotropic tetrahedral mesh generator from the CM2 MeshTools SDK for (as good as possible) equilateral tetrahedrons.
CM2 TetraMesh Iso can fill the volume inside the surface mesh generated by CM2 SurfMesh T3 or CM2 SurfRemesh T3.

Training + Custom Developments and Extensions

We love our code. As we have been and are still working hard to develop it, we know it inside out. No one is better suited to help you in many ways.

We are standing by to assist with the integration of our SDK into your programs. Training sessions are available either at your location or in our offices right here in Versailles, France. We’ll be happy to teach you to use our code, to integrate it and get the best out of it to power and enhance your applications.

We are open to suggestions to expand the boundaries of our CM2 MeshTools SDK and CM2 FEM SDK with new features tailored to your specific needs. We can also design and develop exclusive full custom-made code for you.
