Concepts employed in grid generation codes to speed up the process of obtaining a CFD solution are reviewed, including the use of multiple blocks and interactive graphics. The GRIDGEN interactive, multiple block grid generation codes, are presented as an example of grid generation software that employs these techniques. The features of a hypothetical ideal interactive multiple block grid generation code are identified through a brief discussion of existing technology.
