Reduce Your Mesh Time

This 25ft diameter storage sphere with unusual legs is solid meshed. At a 5″ element size (the element size that will mesh), it takes 172 seconds to mesh. The bad news is that a smaller mesh is required in a number of locations. When the overall element size is reduced to 3″, it takes 1002 seconds to mesh.
Splitting large objects into smaller items can reduce the mesh time. Here the sphere is split into 6 and 12 pieces.
The mesh times go down significantly as the sphere is split into smaller bodies.
Reducing the body sizes can have a huge impact when the number of elements exceeds 1 million…
