TetGen Alternatives

TetGen is described as 'program to generate tetrahedral meshes of any 3D polyhedral domains. TetGen generates exact constrained Delaunay tetrahedralizations, boundary conforming Delaunay meshes, and Voronoi partitions' and is an app. There are more than 10 alternatives to TetGen for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac, Android and iPhone. The best alternative is Blender, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like TetGen are Wings 3D, Gmsh, picoCAD and SALOME.

TetGen alternatives are mainly 3D Modelers but may also be CAD Software or 3D Animators. Filter by these if you want a narrower list of alternatives or looking for a specific functionality of TetGen.

  1. Blender is the free and open-source 3D creation suite. It supports the entirety of the 3D pipeline—modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing, video editing, and motion tracking.

    ⚫︎ 3D SculptingBlender offers tools to push, pull, smooth, grab or pinch to manipulate a 3D model.
    ⚫︎ Keyframe AnimationCompositions can be keyframed in Blender, allowing you to change the parameters over time.
    ⚫︎ Animation RiggingBlender supports bone structures to manipulate a 3D model like a puppet for animation.
    ⚫︎ Extensible by Plugins/ExtensionsBlender can be extended with add-ons, plugins and extensions.
    ⚫︎ Node BasedBlender supports node editing, a form of visual programming that gives you full control over the rendering.
    ⚫︎ Motion CaptureYou can capture and modify/animate faces, gestures, movements or objects within the Blender.
    ⚫︎ Physically-Based RenderingPrecise rendering method for Blender to represent of how light interacts with material properties.
    ⚫︎ CustomizableBlender is easy to customize with themes or similar features.

  2. Wings 3D icon

    Wings 3D

    • FreeOpen Source
    • Mac
    • Windows
    • Linux

    Wings 3D is a subdivision modeler inspired by Nendo and Mirai from Izware.

    It is possible to assign materials, vertex color, UV coordinates and textures, but there will be improvements in those features before Wings goes 1.0.

    There is no support in Wings for doing animations.

    ⚫︎ Keyframe AnimationCompositions can be keyframed in Wings 3D, allowing you to change the parameters over time.
