Griddle provides automatic, interactive, and easy-to-use surface meshing tools and volume mesh generation capabilities. Meshes created by Griddle can be imported into various numerical simulation software, including FLAC3D/3DEC (www.itascacg.com), ABAQUS, ANSYS, NASTRAN, and LS-DYNA. Griddle is a commercial product with free demo version available. It can be installed for Rhino 3D versions 6 and 7 (Windows platform).
Griddle has been designed to address meshing needs primarily in the fields of civil, mining, geotechnical and petroleum engineering. However, Griddle is a general meshing software and it can produce volume meshes for variety of applications requiring Finite Element, Finite Volume, Discrete Element analyses or other types of numerical modelling.
Griddle's volume meshers are capable of creating:
- Fully structured, fully conformal, hexahedral volume meshes based on Rhino solids.
- Unstructured, fully conformal, hex-dominant or tetrahedral volume meshes based on surface meshes.
In addition, Griddle provides powerful capabilities to work with surface meshes, such as mesh clean-up and repair, conformal intersections, re-meshing, extraction, extrusion, extension, etc.
Griddle features an automatic installer, periodic updates, full documentation and hands-on tutorial examples, as well as full technical support for the commercial version. For detailed information, please visit www.itascacg.com/software/Griddle
