CEI Releases Extremely Fast Mesher

News CEI has released Harpoon a new software package that simplifies and speeds the process of generating high-quality meshes from standard CAD packages.

The method, which utilizes a Cartesian background mesh, can create surface-only grids, purely Cartesian grids, and boundary-fitted grids. Harpoon uses tetrahedral, prism and pyramid cells to ensure high mesh fidelity near model surfaces. Purely tetrahedral cells can also be generated. Finished meshes can be exported to all major CFD and FEA programs.

Furthermore, the software can handle non-watertight CAD models and users can specify level of detail resolution without having to modify the original surface definition.

"We call this an extreme mesher, because it provides quality, simplicity, speed, flexibility and reliability that are unprecedented," says Kent Misegades, CEI's president. "We think Harpoon will revolutionize computational simulation by breaking up the current bottleneck of pre-processing."
