Meshing

 
 
In engineering, meshing refers to using computer software to generate polygons or polyhedrals that connect in a series of lines and points to approximates a digital model's geometry. Meshing is often performed in order to divide the model into cells in order to conduct a simulation analysis or render a digital model.
