Automatic Unstructured and Anisotropic Grid Generation with Scaling

Script to easily generate stretched meshes and grids for physics, #FEA, and #CAE simulations adapted to the size of the geometry objects.

Anisotropic mesh generation

For models and geometries where either one axis direction dominates, such as for long or tall geometry objects, or simulations where the solution is expected to not to vary in certain directions, such as some flow situations, it can be very beneficial to use anisotropic grids. By using elongated mesh elements the total mesh size can be reduced resulting in significantly faster simulations (especially for full 3D simulations). Unfortunately, most automatic mesh generation algorithms try to avoid anisotropic mesh elements, so if the geometry allows for it, the best way to generating such anisotropic meshes is by manually generating structured meshes.
