Sweeping has become the work-horse algonthm for creating conforming
hexahedral meshes of complex models. This paper describes progress
on the automatic, robust generation of MultiSwept meshes in CUBIT.
MultiSweeping extends the class of volumes that may be swept to
include those with multiple source and multiple target surfaces.
While not yet perfect, CUBITís MultiSweeping has recently become
more reliable, and been extended to assemblies of volumes. Sweep
Forging automates the process of making a volume (multi) sweepable:
Sweep Verification takes the given source and target surfaces, and
automatically classifies curve and vertex types so that sweep layers
are well formed and progress from sources to targets.
