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]
