MeshPy: Simplicial Mesh Generation from Python


MeshPy offers quality triangular and tetrahedral mesh generation for Python. Meshes of this type are chiefly used in finite-element simulation codes, but also have many other applications ranging from computer graphics to robotics.

In order to generate 2D and 3D meshes, MeshPy provides Python interfaces to three well-regarded mesh generators, Triangle by J. Shewchuk, TetGen by Hang Si The former two are included in the package in slightly modified versions. A generic mesh reader for the latter is included, as is an easy way to run gmsh from a Python script.

For an interface to gmsh by Christophe Geuzaine and Jean-Francois Remacle, see gmsh_interop <https://github.com/inducer/gmsh_interop>.

MeshPy has no dependencies other than a C++ compiler, pybind11, and a working Python installation. Before installing meshpy, you may install pybind11 using the command:

pip install pybind11

As of Version 0.91.2, MeshPy also works with Python 3.
