In this paper we introduce an automatic tetrahedral mesh generator for complex genus-zero solids, based on the novel meccano technique. Our method only demands a surface triangulation of the solid, and a coarse approximation of the solid, called meccano, that is just a cube in this case. The procedure builds a 3-D triangulation of the solid as a deformation of an appropriate tetrahedral mesh of the meccano. For this purpose, the method combines several procedures: an automatic mapping from thedoi:10.1007/978-3-642-04319-2_27 dblp:conf/imr/CasconMERM09 fatcat:urbbb5tdkzg7rkdqsjj5rvgepa
