Finite Element Analysis without meshing: would you use it?

I just posted couple of videos for a fully automated stress analysis plugin for Rhino modeler
call Scan&Solve

We are now in a middle of great experiment to see how this tool can be used by users who had limited access to FEA, or even had no experience with FEA.  The issue is somewhat controversial, because many believe that FEA should be used only by licensed analyst.  For example,  see the recent discussion

So my opinion is on record.  What do others think?


The beta version of the software is free and can be downloaded from
