Optimize memory requirement


I have a technical question regarding memory consumption in Coreform Cubit.

Could you please tell me if there is a way in Cubit to optimize the amount of memory needed for building huge meshes (through python API), where numerous copying and merging operations are involved?

Thank you in advance.


Hi Aida,

I don’t have any really generalized methods for optimizing memory usage. Copying the mesh requires new memory at least as big as the current mesh space. We have tried to optimize the size of the structures, but there are limits with the current mesh database.

What operating system are you using? Memory usage and how memory is freed is very operating system dependent.


Hello Karl,

I m a linux ubuntu user on my laptop and Linux is also the operating system of our clusters where I usually run my big meshes.
