Mesh Refinement Sources

The standard MeshSim mesh size specifications are given on each model entity in the model. To give more flexibility it is also possible to specify mesh size in arbitrary regions of space. These "mesh refinement sources" can be of a variety of shapes, including points, lines, rectangles, spheres, etc.

Below are some examples of the application of mesh refinement sources.

To the right, refinement at a point.

Below, refinement in a region of space defined by a sphere and a cube.

Below right, refinement along a line and a cylindrical region of space.

These can be combined in many ways to produce meshes for almost any imaginable purpose.
