The things you find out from poking around the Enhancement Request list…
Did you know that you can get ANSYS Mechanical to report the amount of time that the meshing takes? I didn’t until I stumbled across this little gem on the request to show mesh time metrics.
This option is already available for many releases now. Users can turn performance diagnostics by setting to Tools -> Options -> Miscellaneous -> “Report Performance Diagnostics in Messages” to Yes inside Mechanical.
So, of course, I tried it out.
This was in version 2020R1, but it says that the option has been there since R19.0. Now they just need to add it to the Statistics section of the Mesh Details so that we can use it as an output parameter.
