Tetrahedral Mesh Generation

A MultiMaterial Tetrahedral Meshing API and Application.




Cleaver - A MultiMaterial Tetrahedral Meshing Library and Application

The Cleaver Library is based on the 'Lattice Cleaving' algorithm:
Bronson J., Levine, J., Whitaker R., "Lattice Cleaving: Conforming Tetrahedral Meshes of Multimaterial Domains with Bounded Quality". Proceedings of the 21st International Meshing Roundtable (San Jose, CA, Oct 7-10, 2012)

The method is theoretically guaranteed to produce valid meshes with bounded dihedral angles, while still conforming to multimaterial material surfaces. Empirically these bounds have been shown to be significant.
