Tools and helpers for simplex meshes

Project description


CircleCI codecov Code style: black PyPi Version GitHub stars

Compute Voronoi tesselations and everything else you need for finite-volume discretizations. Do it fast, too.


Given a triangular or tetrahedral mesh, meshplex computes

  • covolumes,
  • control volumes,
  • cell circumcenters,
  • the surface areas,
  • control volume circumcenters,

and much more.

To use meshplex, simple read a mesh (e.g., this pacman):

mesh ='pacman.msh')


(For mesh creation, check out pygmsh, mshr, pygalmesh, meshzoo, optimesh or any other tool.)


meshplex is available from the Python Package Index, so simply type

pip install -U meshplex

to install or upgrade.


To run the meshplex unit tests, check out this repository and type



To create a new release

  1. bump the __version__ number,

  2. publish to PyPi and GitHub:

    make publish


meshplex is published under the MIT license.
