Griddle is a new, powerful, easy-to-use meshing solution for complex simulations. Model generation has never been easier. Griddle features a simple user interface and requires only a few input parameters to produce high quality surface and volume meshes.
Griddle leverages and extends the power of Rhinoceros 5.0, 3D CAD software from Robert McNeel & Associates. Rhino can create, edit, analyze, document, render, animate, and translate NURBS* curves, surfaces, and solids, point clouds, and polygon meshes. There are no limits on complexity, degree, or size beyond those of your hardware. Rhino is sold separately, but can be purchased from Itasca at a discount when combined with FLAC, FLAC3D, UDEC, 3DEC, or PFC.
Rhino 6.0 features:
For example, easily create models as Rhino surfaces using objects, planes, and extruded curves.
BlockRanger 1.2, included free with Griddle, is a fully interactive, volume mesh generation plug-in for Rhinoceros 5.0. BlockRanger automatically fills Rhino solids with high-quality, mapped, all-hexahedral (brick) elements for use with FLAC3D, 3DEC, and many other engineering analysis packages that require hexahedral meshing and a strict control of element quality, spatial distribution, and orientation. BlockRanger is also sold separately.
