BOXERMesh is an advanced, highly automated, unstructured mesher with robust CAD import, that delivers quality multi-million cell meshes in minutes, on geometries of arbitrary complexity and size.

Developed by CFS to overcome the traditional bottlenecks constraining engineering simulations, it is implemented as scalable, fully parallelised software, based on innovative algorithms adapted from the computer graphics industry. The result is a meshing software of exceptional performance, offering a step improvement in complex CAE simulation capability and productivity.

BOXERMesh offers the following functionality as standard :

Geometry access: direct import of native CAD files, without requiring CAD licenses. This provides access to CAD attributes such as face names, CAD layers etc., which can be accessed directly and automatically. The GUI can be used to label and classify "primary" geometry formats such as STL.
Graphical User Interface: BOXERMesh comes with a GUI that provides powerful yet straightforward functions to allow non-specialists to import, specify and create quality meshes. Top-level functionality allows full mesh specification, whilst tools are available for fine scale alteration of the mesh if needed.
Scripting: a high-level object-oriented scripted language allows BOXERMesh to be run in batch, or as part of an automated optimisation process. Scripts are readily generated either through the GUI or manually through editing. BOXERMesh is ideally suited to be part of an integrated workflow.
Cartesian and Cylindrical Polar Coordinate Systems: both systems are implemented, and both support periodic mesh boundaries with exact-match interfaces.
Prismatic near wall layers: these are easily specified and automatically created by the software, allowing viscous flow features in the near wall region to be resolved down to y+ levels of 1 or lower.
Conjugate meshes: the meshing of different domains within a geometry, typically adjacent fluid and solid domains, is a standard capability. The interface between domains is fully conformal.
Fully parallel, fully scalable: BOXERMesh is parallel, scalable software.
