Simpleware Volume Mesh Tools

Image-Based Meshing for FEA & CFD

Simpleware software provides a direct route from image data to simulation. Generate volume meshes that are ready to use in leading FE/CFD solvers. Customize models with a wide range of options to meet specific simulation needs, including contact surfaces, boundary conditions, and material properties. Rely on meshing software that generates simulation-ready models, with no need for postprocessing or fixing.


Why Use Simpleware Software for Volume Meshing?

  • Automated and fast: From segmented image to solver-ready model in minutes.
  • Accurate and reliable: Image accuracy maintained during meshing, multi-part models guaranteed without gaps or overlaps.
  • Flexible: Adapt mesh sizes with user-definable mesh refinement, optimize element qualities against a wide choice of metrics.
  • Robust: Conforming interfaces and shared nodes remove the need for further processing in other software.
  • Compatible: Export directly to the FE/CFD solver of your choice, with extensive options for different simulation requirements.
  • Fully supported: All licenses come with full support from our expert team of application engineers.
