### Finite Element Analysis : Meshing

Generally a finite element model consists of a mesh of nodes and
elements. In the Meshing task, we shall:

The best way to create a mesh is directly on the
part's geometry. Finite element model would be associated with the part, so the
software updates the mesh to reflect any change to the part. You can also use
geometry-based meshes for geometry-based optimization.
There are separate softwares like Hypermesh dedicated only for meshing with many advanced options that makes the meshing task very easy and fast.

If the accuracy and complexity of the FEA analysis requirement is average, then you can go for integrated FEA applications along with CAD software like Catia, NX , Solidedge etx.

But if the mesh model is very huge, then you should opt for an analysis specific software.
