Many triangle and tetrahedral meshing improvements are new, including the following:
Tet Mesh Scaling: A new ability to scale tet meshes to increase or decrease element count by a factor is available
Exodus Sizing Function Enhancements for Physics-based Adaptive Meshing: Enhancements to the Exodus sizing function enable generating adaptive meshes based on analysis results
Sculpt Meshing has gained several new enhancements including the following:
New Blunt Tangency Command: A new defeature functionality allows for blunting sharp angles in geometry to avoid the creation of elements with high angles
Lite Mesh Enhancements: Several existing features can now be used with lite meshes, which were introduced in Cubit 15.3. Selection, drawing, moving of blocks, selection of sidesets, and other operations are now permitted
Import STL 'Surface_Feature_Angle' Option: A 'Surface_Feature_Angle' option can now control the creation of surface features independently of creating curve features while importing an STL file
CUBIT is available to anyone on the Sandia LANs. CUBIT 15.4 will now run automatically from the Linux command prompt, replacing CUBIT 15.3. It is also licensed free of charge for government use outside of Sandia. If you are a current CUBIT licensed user, you may download CUBIT 15.4 from the CUBIT Download Webpage. See CUBIT Licensing for information on obtaining a license.
The CUBIT 15.4 Release Notes provide a description of all the new features included in CUBIT 15.4. For detailed information follow the links to the online users manual.
Classroom tutorials are advertised on the CUBIT Tutorial Webpage, where you can also find a download for self-guided tutorials.
