Introduction to HEXABLOCK

With SALOME framework, a CAD component (GEOM) and a meshing component (SMESH) are developed. These tools enable to construct hexahedral meshes:

  • by means of a CAD cutting in blocks topologically equivalent to hexahedra with GEOM component,

  • and generate a hexahedral mesh with SMESH component.

The HEXABLOCK component of SALOME is designed to help users to build hexahedral meshes:

  • with also the block method,

  • but without modify the geometry.

Like other SALOME components, HEXABLOCK can also be used in two ways:

  • by using Graphic User Interface,

  • by writing Python Script.
