Gmsh is a finite element mesh generator developed by Christophe Geuzaine and Jean-François Remacle. Released under the GNU General Public License (with an exception to allow linking with other specific mesh generators), Gmsh is free software. Gmsh contains 4 modules, for geometry description, meshing, solving and post-processing. Gmsh supports parametric input, and has advanced visualization mechanisms.[1][2]

Gmsh is modified to integrated with SwiftComp, a general-purpose multiscale modeling software. The modified version, called Gmsh4SC (, is compiled and deployed on the Composites Design and Manufacturing HUB (cdmHUBh, One can freely launch this software in the cloud using a browser on any device connected to the Internet.
