Automatic 3D finite element mesh generator with OpenCascade support

This is Gmsh with support of OpenCascade.

Gmsh is an automatic 3D finite element mesh generator primarily Delaunay with build-in CAD and post-processing facilities. Its primal design goal is to provide a simple meshing tool for academic test cases with parametric input and up to date visualization capabilities. One of its strengths is the ability to respect a characteristic length field for the generation of adapted meshes on lines, surfaces and volumes, and to mix these meshes with simple structured grids.

Gmsh is built around four modules geometry, mesh, solver and post-processing. The specification of any input to these modules is done either interactively using the graphical user interface or in ASCII text files using Gmsh’s own scripting language.
