Press Release - Brussels, Belgium - May 26th, 2020

NUMECA and Gmsh are pleased to announce the establishment of an exclusive partnership for creating an industrialized and commercialized version of the world-leading open source grid generation toolset Gmsh.

Through this partnership, NUMECA and Gmsh's inventors will co-develop a professional version of Gmsh, Gmsh-Pro, within NUMECA’s multiphysics environment OMNIS™, extending its capabilities in terms of performances, ease-of-use and CAD links, to a wide range of new applications in CAE and multiphysics.

“Offering best-in-class grid generation tools in support of reliable simulation and reduced design cycle time and cost is a main priority at NUMECA. We are therefore very excited with the prospect of developing a professional version of the Gmsh libraries in OMNIS™ and bringing the technology to our partners and customers.”

Professor Charles Hirsch, President of NUMECA International

NUMECA and Gmsh's inventors are also joining forces to continuously extend the functionalities of Gmsh-Pro towards additional applications.

The partnership reinforces NUMECA’s strategy of combining best-in-class grid generation tools—from multi-block structured, cartesian octree meshes to full hex and hybrid unstructured grids—into dedicated simulation workflows within a single environment (OMNIS™) and fulfills an increasing industrial need for overall reliability within a framework of geometric complexity and demanding simulation.


About Gmsh

Gmsh is an open source 3D finite element mesh generator with a built-in CAD engine and post-processor. Gmsh is the most widely used open source meshing software in the world, with a community of thousands of users both in academia and industry.

Gmsh has been developed by Christophe Geuzaine and Jean-François Remacle, both full Professors of Engineering. Both Gmsh’s inventors are extremely motivated to join forces with NUMECA to release a professional version of Gmsh that aims to become the reference software in mesh generation.
