Hey HoWil! Nice to hear from you! As I far as I understood, bernd rebased my old branch onto the actual FreeCAD master and put all together into the branch I mentioned in my edit. So it is on its way, but has to be approved and merged by him. (You may check out the branch from bernd and you will get an impression, but notice that gmsh needs to be compiled with multi threading support.)
ENABLE_OPENMP should include multithreading. See here:

Code: Select all
cmake -DENABLE_OPENMP=1 -DENABLE_MPI=1
Even when FC prescribes loads, BCs and material on geometry, for me it makes sense to mesh STL, becase after topology optimization original geometry (before removing material) can be used to define analysis together with FEM mesh which is not associated to the geometry.
