We exploit geometrical symmetries to accelerate three-dimensional volumetric mesh generation by using a simple, yet flexible, symmetry-aware mesh generation pipeline. Performance benchmarks show, that for complex geometries, especially geometries with very thin but large layers, speed-ups of 3 to 10, in some cases even up to 50 can be achieved at comparable element quality.
