NETGEN(1) General Commands Manual NETGEN(1)


netgen — Automatic 3d tetrahedral mesh generator


netgen [OPTIONS...] [file.geo]


This manual page documents briefly the netgen and bar commands.

This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

netgen is an automatic mesh generation tool for two and three dimensions. Netgen generates triangular or quadrilateral meshes in 2D, and tetrahedral meshes in 3D.

The input for 2D is described by spline curves, and the input for 3D problems is either defined by constructive solid geometries, or by the standard STL file format. Netgen contains modules for mesh optimization and hierarchical mesh refinement. Curved elements are supported of arbitrary order.



Input geometry file (alternative: netgen filename)
Output mesh file
Automatic mesh-size selection
Filetype of output file, default is netgen file
Run in batchmode
