Hello, I'm extremely interested in this project. It's pretty amazing.
I tried to subscribe to 'mailing list' but after 2 tries I didn't get any email instructions. If you can help out that would be great.
It looks that your subscription succeeded.
Also, quick question. Can I model about 1-2M tet-elements (starting with very simplest linear elast) on an Intel i7 with 32G ram and a pair of new Nvidia RTX 2060s (or 2080)?
It might be possible. I have solved multi-physical problems with about 3.4M DOFs on 32 GB RAM.
Note that sfepy does not use GPUs - it relies mostly on numpy and scipy, that do not have a "GPU backend", AFAIK.
Also, sfepy is not a HPC code, if you feel like needing serious performance, you might want to look at other codes - nowadays there are a number of packages usable from Python, that have much larger development teams, user base, scope, etc.
Let's say it's a structure like this (below). I wrote my own code to generate these meta-structures from STL surfaces. [image: alcoa mgon bracket.png]
Would not using some structural elements such as beams make more sense for such a structure? (Depends on what you want to do with it :))
Linked below is another structure in our new 3D interactive viewer: Note that it can take some time to load and look 'stuck' at 100%. Just wait a minute it will load. http://abemis3d.com/Mgon_intro/Mgon_intro.html
Thank you very much for this great work, and looking forward to participating/contributing.
You can check  for some ideas concerning possible contributions, but note that there is really not much low hanging fruits suitable for new contributors. Anyway, any kind of contribution is welcome!
