Griddle

Description

Griddle is a fully interactive, general-purpose mesh generation plug-in for Rhinoceros 5.0 or 6.0 3D CAD software. Griddle can be used to remesh Rhino surface meshes to comply with precise size specifications and type (triangle or quad-dominant). Surface meshes can then be used as boundaries for Griddle’s volume mesher, which produces high-quality tetrahedral or hex-dominant meshes. The volume meshes are ready for importing into most engineering analysis packages, including FLAC3D and 3DEC.

Benefits

  • General-purpose interactive mesh generator with applications from fluids and geomechanics to structures and biomedical models
  • Easy to learn and to use — if you know Rhino, you already know how to use Griddle
  • Griddle and BlockRanger volume meshes can be imported directly into FLAC3D and 3DEC, and into many other numerical modeling software packages
  • Mesh discontinuities are automatically defined as joints in 3DEC and can be easily specified as interfaces in FLAC3D
