CM2 TetraMesh Aniso

current version: 5.5.0 (June 2024)

Delaunay Solid Anisotropic Tetrahedron Mesh Generator

CM2 TetraMesh Aniso is our Delaunay solid anisotropic tetrahedral mesh generator for your FEA (Finite Element Analysis) applications.

Whereas the Iso counterpart tends to generate equilateral tetrahedrons adapted to local isotropic mesh sizes (scalars), this mesher generates stretched tetrahedrons adapted to local anisotropic metrics (3×3 symmetric matrices defining 3 directions and 3 sizes at each node).

CM2 TetraMesh Aniso also respects user-defined constraints: outer and inner boundary faces, specific embedded faces, edges and nodes, local mesh sizes (anisotropic), maximum size gradations and background mesh.

High-order elements, for instance 10-node tetrahedrons, can be generated with the help of CM2 MeshTools SDK core functions (provided free of charge with all licenses).


  • Solid mesh generator (3D)
  • Anisotropic
  • Hybrid Advancing-front & Delaunay
  • 3-node triangles (outer/embedded), 2-node edges (embedded), inner nodes (embedded)
  • 4-node tetrahedrons
  • yes
  • ≥ 10 000 tetrahedrons / s.

*Speed tests done on Win10 x64 Pro, Intel® Xeon E3 v2 1370 @3.5 GHz (turbo boost disabled), 8 threads.

Strong Foundations

CM2 TetraMesh Aniso is written in streamlined standard C++ with a clear API.

Pricing + Support Services

Pricing and discount policies are available in the pricing brochures. To download them, we only require you to open a developper account with us. It's free: just fill and submit this registration form. It's that easy!

We offer the first 12 months of our comprehensive Support Services with your initial purchase of CM2 TetraMesh Aniso.

Computing Objects professional support services are available directly from our website (access our support services) or via email. They includes downloads of all the latest updates: critical, minor (regular bug fixing) and major updates (enhancements + new features).

We offer special discounts on support services extensions (12, 24 or 36-month) when ordered with your initial purchase.

After this initial period, support services can be easily renewed at the regular price.
Please refer to our latest pricing brochures or contact us if you have any questions.

Complementary Products

CM2 Intersect® T3

CM2 Intersect T3 is the surface triangle mesh repairer from the CM2 MeshTools SDK. The initial and final surface meshes are all-triangle meshes.
CM2 Intersect T3 can repair the input surface mesh for CM2 TetraMesh Iso for instance.

CM2 SurfRemesh® T3

CM2 SurfRemesh T3 is the surface triangle 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 T3 can improve/regenerate the input surface mesh for CM2 TetraMesh Iso or CM2 TetraMesh Aniso for instance.

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(s) inside the surface mesh generated by CM2 SurfMesh T3 or CM2 SurfRemesh T3 for instance.

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.
