Mesh Generation Process

Generating a mesh using AcuConsole requires you to set up the mesh attributes and open the Launch AcuMeshSim dialog.

From the menu bar, click Tools > Generate Mesh.

The dialog provides various mesh generation process controls. Mesh generation in AcuConsole is done by a stand-alone program called AcuMeshSim. This program requires two sets of data:
  • An input file with mesh attributes. This file has an .ams extension.
  • A file with the geometry data.

The .ams file is an .xml file that is read by the AcuMeshSim executable. Providing this file as input to AcuMeshSim allows you to launch the mesh generator from the command line.

The following sections discuss the settings that are available in the Launch AcuMeshSim dialog.
