Altair HyperMesh – Mesh Controls
Tips and Tricks
The Mesh Controls browser allows the access of a majority of the supported meshing approaches (e.g. size and bias, surface deviation), an additional method called “feature based,” the assignment of meshing regions, the storage and management of meshing parameters all within a mesh controls tree. For many applications (e.g. structural and CFD) this streamlines the preprocessing and mesh management tasks.
