# optimization command

Syntax

extrude mesh optimization i

Specify optimization level 0 ≤ i ≤ 10 for the unstructured mesher. The default value is 5.

A zero value makes the mesher to skip the optimization step. The speed is maximal but the quality may be poor. From value 1 on, the optimization algorithm uses several techniques to improve both the shape quality and the size quality of the zones. Level 5 is usually a good trade-off between quality and speed.
