To improve meshing performance, the Autodesk Simulation CFD mesher leverages multiple computing cores. This reduces the amount of time required to generate large meshes, and better utilizes high performance computing hardware.
To enable multi-threaded meshing, enable this flag in the Flag Manager
The argument, n, is the number of cores to be used by the mesher.
- Autodesk Simulation CFD automatically detects and uses the available cores on the computer, up to the value specified in the flag argument.
- Multi-threaded meshing is not available for models launched from the Pro/Engineer Mechanica option.
- Multi-threaded meshing does not support Volume Growth rate and Boundary Layer blending options from the Advanced Meshing Controls dialog.
- For meshes that contain both tetrahedral and extruded (wedge) elements, Multicore meshing generates the tet elements, and single core meshing generates the extruded elements. The transition is automatic and transparent.
