TopShape¬†uses the direct solver that Google also utilizes¬†(CHOLMOD). On top of that, TopShape has it’s own proprietary hybrid solver that takes advantage of both direct and iterative linear solvers to solve models with high-accuracy second order elements very fast (up to 50 times faster than the direct solver). Overall, TopShape can be much faster than other commercial solvers for FEA in most cases.
