About snappyHexMesh

  • snappyHexMesh is a robust OpenFOAM application for mesh generation.


  • It creates computational mesh from a surface CAD model.


  • No model parts connectivity is required.


  • The model should be “waterproof” or at least only tiny holes are allowed.


  • Many options allow wide field of applicability.


  • snappyHexMesh checks and evaluates mesh quality parameters.


  • Surface model must be provided, e.g., in .OBJ or .STL format.
