Include meshing as part of the analysis sequence

In many finite lement products, the meshing is done as part of an analysis sequence. In Moldflow Insight, I first have to go through a meshing step before I start my analysis. I would like to have the option to include meshing automatically in my analysis sequence. Particularly when it comes to large meshes and analyses, I can start the mesh+solver sequence for an overnight run.  

The mesher is pretty reliable nowadays so this would make things easy.

I second this request.  It would be of use to me as well.

I would second this request, if the mesh is reliable.


Even if the mesh quality has improved during the last years, we stil have

to improve nearly every mesh manually.

Especially the larger meshes with many details are prone to show some errors

(might origin from the mesh as well as some 'optimizable' input - geometry.


To prevent starting the simulation and seeing the next morning that it did not run properly

kind of a pre-start check should be done which shows possible problems.
