NETGEN is an automatic 3d tetrahedral mesh generator. It accepts input from constructive solid geometry (CSG) or boundary representation (BRep) from STL file format. The connection to a geometry kernel allows the handling of IGES and STEP files. NETGEN contains modules for mesh optimization and hierarchical mesh refinement. Netgen is open source based on the LGPL license. It is available for Unix/Linux and Windows.

I have problems with mesh refinement in 5.1. It crashes when performing a refinement on the hinge.stl found in the tutorial. Is this problem specific for 5.1 or is there something else wrong? Could somebody compile a 5.3 windows installer?
Reply kanishkumar2008: I think you are looking how to install on Windows right? You may have downloaded the wrong file (as I faced too). Please go to "Files" entry above and click into the "netgen-mesher", you will find many versions of Netgen available. Try download any one of them which contains setup exe for windows. p/s: For those who download netgen because of some functions in EIDORS 3.6, I found that Netgen-5.0 is the latest version which compatible with EIDORS 3.6. All the best.
