Automatic 2D and 3D FEM Mesh and Grid Generation using Gmsh | FEATool

Full GUI and CLI Gmsh Mesh Generator Integration with FEATool

FEATool-Gmsh Mesh Generator Integration This FEATool update patch fully integrates the Gmsh finite element mesh and grid generator with FEATool [1][2]. Both Matlab and Octave command line interface (CLI) usage is supported with the new gridgen_gmsh function, as well as the FEATool GUI with a new dedicated Gmsh button …

FEM Meshes by Extrusion of Quadrilateral and Triangular Grids

Creating 3D Semi-Structured Grids Using Extrusion

When generating grids and meshes for fully three-dimensional structures with constant cross section in one or more directions, it is often advantageous to first create a two dimensional grid and extrude it to 3D, rather than generate a full 3D grid directly. By using the extrusion technique more control over the grid …

Gmsh CAD File Import and Mesh Generation Tutorial | FEATool

CAD File Import, Mesh, and Grid Generation with Gmsh

Gmsh is a cross platform two and three dimensional mesh and grid generation software tool. As Gmsh supports many CAD file formats such as STEP, IGES, and STL, and also includes a variety of integrated mesh generation algorithms, such as Tetgen, Netgen, and Blossom-Quad, Gmsh can be used with FEATool to allow for more …

Unstructured Matlab 2D Mesh and Grid Generation using Triangle | FEATool

Triangle Mesh Generator GUI and CLI Integration with FEATool

FEATool-Triangle Mesh Generator Integration This update fully integrates J.R. Shewchuk’s fast and efficient 2D mesh and grid generator Triangle with FEATool [1][2][3]. Both Matlab and Octave command line interface (CLI) usage is supported with the gridgen_triangle function, as well as FEATool GUI usage with the …

Creating 3D Interactive Plotly Visualizations with Matlab | FEATool

Interactive 3D Data and Simulation Visualizations with Plotly and Matlab

FEATool can be used to easily generate interactive surface, contour, arrow, and other visualizations of unstructured mesh and simulation data in 1D, 2D, and 3D. As FEATool also supports Plotly as rendering and visualization engine it is possible to create, interactively explore, and share simulation and unstructured …

Matlab Plot and Visualization on Unstructured Meshes and Grids

Visualization and Postprocessing on Unstructured Grids and Meshes with FEATool Functions

This post explains how to use Matlab and the FEATool postprocessing function library to import, plot, and visualize general data on unstructured grids and meshes. Although Matlab and Octave do include visualization functionality for surface and contour plots (with the surf and contour functions), it is currently …

Automatic Unstructured Quadrilateral Matlab Grid Generation Framework

Automatic Unstructured Quadrilateral Grid Generation

QuadMesh is a Matlab and Octave cross compatible automatic and unstructured quadrilateral grid generation code, developed to be used with the FEATool Multiphysics Matab and Octave Finite Element simulation toolbox. Using quadrilateral grid cells are often advantageous to simplex or triangular cells in that they can …
