Hello everyone,

I am currently working on a project where I am developing my own open
source Finite Element Simulator. I have recently finished a version of my
CAD editor for the program. Right now, I am only working in 2D. The
simulator will be simulating non-linear electromagnetic devices and the
current name is Omni-FEM and the project is being hosted by GitHub.

With my work done on the CAD editor, I ma moving to the mesh generator
portion of the program. I am not interested in developing my own code for
this portion at the moment and I am looking to utilize gmsh mesh generator
and integrate it with the code that I have. However, that means that I need
to transfer my CAD data structures to GMSH CAD data structures.

I have gone through most of the GMSH source and extracted the more relevent
items. I have the GModel, GVertex, GEdge, GRegion, and GFace. I also
extracted out the source files that are relevant to mesh generation. I plan
to use Deal.II as the solver but right now, I am focusing on translating my
CAD data structures into something that GMSH can understand.

I am currently reviewing the code for GModel, GVertex, GEdge, GRegion, and
GFace. I am going to be building my GModel not from the UI or the shell but
rather from within the code itself. Kinda like this guy from a few years
ago: http://onelab.info/pipermail/gmsh/2011/006817.html

Anyways, I was wondering if there is anyone on the mailing list that I
could contact and connect with that has some experience in doing what I am
about to do?
