AbstractThe cycle of computer aided design and verification via physics simulation is often burdened by the use of separate tools for modeling and simulation, which requires conversion between formats, e.g. meshing for finite element simulation. This separation is often unavoidable because the tools contain specific domain knowledge which is mandatory for the task, for example a specific CAD modeling suite. We propose a distributed application that allows interactive modification of tetrahedral meshes, derived from existing CAD models. It provides immediate simulation feedback by offloading resource-intensive tasks onto multiple machines thereby enabling fast design cycles for individualized versions of mass-produced parts.
