Here the list of the most important mesh options in ANSYS® Mesher;

  • Relevance Option In ANSYS® Meshing: The relevance option of meshing in ANSYS® is the most basic way to increase the number of mesh nodes and elements on your geometries. With the increasing relevance, mesh density is also increased in ANSYS® Mesher.
  • Mesh Metrics In ANSYS® Meshing: Mesh metrics is a very important tool to see the various situations of your mesh structure such as element quality, warping factor, jacobian ratioand others. You can do assessments about the obtained mesh structure, and you can de required updates on your mesh structure in ANSYS®.
  • Changing The Sizes Of Mesh Elements In ANSYS®: To obtain better mesh structures or detailed mesh structures, you can optimize your sizes of elements of mesh structure according to your computational power. Smaller elements sizes mean finer mesh structures in ANSYS® Meshing.
  • Initial Size Seed Option: You can select one of the initial seeding according to the determination of meshing priority of assemblies in ANSYS® Mesher.
  • Span Angle Center Option: In this option of ANSYS® Mesher, the mesh structure of the curvature regions of your geometry will be finer. Three options are available: Coarse, Medium, and Fine.
  • Showing Mappable Bodies In ANSYS®: If you need to do mesh mapping in ANSYS® Mesher, you can use this option to see mappable bodies at your assembly or geometries in ANSYS® Mechanical.
Various meshing options in ANSYS®.


These are the general options and tools to create your mesh structure in ANSYS® Mechanical or mesher easily. Obtaining an optimized mesh structure is very important in terms of;

  • The shape of your geometries,
  • Type of analysis that you are carrying on in ANSYS®,
  • Your computational properties to creating and solving analyses.
