Announcements Wed, 16 Apr 14 09:56:51 -0400 Announcements en-CA New Forum on CFD-Online Fri, 28 Dec 2012 06:35:02 -0500 admin 310@/vanilla/index.php?p=/discussions
I am please to announce that there is a dedicated enGrid forum on CFD-Online.

The new forum can be found here:

This old forum will be available as read-only until we have figured out how to conserve the old discussions for reference purposes.

Best regards,
engrid-1.2rc1 Wed, 05 May 2010 19:47:39 -0400 Oliver 98@/vanilla/index.php?p=/discussions decided to make a "proper" release available. We encourage everybody to
test this release and report any problems. Before mid May it is
envisaged to finalise this release which will then be called 1.2.0.
Currently engrid-1.2rc1 is available as source code on our server

Binary packages will follow shortly; please check the server for any
updates or send us an email and we will notify you when a binary package
for your Linux distribution becomes available.

Version 1.2 of enGrid has a significantly improved algorithm for
boundary layer creation and an integrated surface mesher. A file
template mechanism offers the possibility to create dedicated solver
output for OPENFOAM (OPENFOAM is a registered trade mark of OpenCFD
Limited) or other solvers. Currently simpleFoam and rhoSimpleFoam are
supported (versions 1.5 & 1.6). Contributions for other solvers would be
most welcome and we will certainly help anybody who wants to extend
enGrid's export capabilities.

In the future we will publish regular bug-fixes for this release and are
planning to release 1.3 towards the end of 2010. The emphasis for 1.3
will be put on performance, robustness and documentation along with
small improvements that arise from daily support or engineering tasks.]]>

the GIT repository will move to a new server (starting today 06/01/2010). As a result it will be unavailable for a few days.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

We will be moving to a different office and our server will be moving too. Hence the IP address ( will not be valid after a certain date. Please use the URL to access our website and the discussion forum ( This URL will always be valid -- apart from maybe a few hours during the DNS update.

Apologies for any inconvenience this might cause!

version 1.0.1 Tue, 02 Jun 2009 10:11:34 -0400 Oliver 41@/vanilla/index.php?p=/discussions
we have prepared an intermediate release 1.0.1 which can be downloaded from our FTP server ( This morning, while trying to do a remote install on a customer's computer, I noticed that the package was somewhat incomplete (e.g. the script to build the NETGEN library was missing). There is an updated version available now which is also a lot smaller, because I have removed the NETGEN sources from the distribution. Instead you can use the "" script to automatically download the latest SVN sources and compile the library. We will shortly provide an alternative script to build the NETGEN library based on their latest release, rather than an SVN snapshot. It has happened once that the SVN snapshot produced a library which didn't work properly.
