Netgen 6.2 support and stand-alone version

Posted by Trevor Laughlin at April 06. 2018

Hello,

I just wanted to share a project that may be relevant/useful to Salome:

It would be great if the meshing module of Salome was optionally available/built as a stand-alone library like this, then I could avoid replicating this each time a new version of Salome is released. Just pull new changes and only build "SMESH". Add preprocessors if being built as stand-alone?
Cheers,
Trevor

I should add that there is an effort to get changes incorporated into Netgen to make it work with "SMESH" naturally so perhaps patching can be avoided in the future.

Hello Trevor,

I think putting sources from different SALOME modules together into the same repository is not a good idea. In any case it is not appropriate for SALOME project, at least in the way it is done now, sorry. Modularity is indeed one of the most important aspects of SALOME architecture - each module is responsible for particular feature of the platform.

Regards,
Vadim.

Hi,
out of curiosity does Netgen 6.2 could be used for NETGENPlugin?

Shall I have to use the patch above to get Netgen 6.2 (1804) working?

Thanks for any info

Best
C.

Netgen 6.2 was not tested yet with SALOME Netgen plugin module that is currently based on patched version of Netgen 5.3.1.

Before saying anything definite, it is necessary to check what fixes used with SALOME were pushed to Netgen repository. Note that in addition to bug fixes some specific improvements needed by SALOME were introduced with the patch.
