Grid Generation The CUBIT Team is pleased to announce Version 10.0 of the CUBIT Geometry and Mesh Generation Toolkit. CUBIT has been the focus of state-of-the-art geometry and mesh generation research and development at Sandia National Laboratories for over a decade. Sandia has long recognized the vital role geometry and meshing plays in computational engineering simulation. CUBIT represents a significant investment in improving tools needed to reduce the time to analysis. As such, the CUBIT team has made many significant strides with this new release.

Here is a sampling of CUBIT 10.0 New Features. For a full list of new features, see the CUBIT 10.0 Release Notes.
  • PTC Granite-based Kernel - Users can now work directly with Pro/Engineer models without the necessity for a separate translation step. This is in addition to the ACIS geometry kernel which has been upgraded to use ACIS R14.
  • Geometry Adaptive Mesh - The skeleton sizing function is a sophisticated new approach to automatically generate element sizing based upon geometric characteristics of the model.
  • Graphical User Interface - CUBIT 10.0 introduces many new enhancements to its GUI.
  • ID-Less Journal Files - ID-Less journal files provide a solution to overcome journaling problems by offering the option to convert existing journal files with absolute IDs to a relative ID.
  • Macintosh OS X Support - The Macintosh operating system, OS X, is now a fully supported platform using the native OS X environment.

CUBIT is available to anyone on the Sandia LANs. It is also licensed free of charge for government use and academic/research purposes outside of Sandia. See CUBIT Licensing for information on obtaining a license.
