This paper updates the status of efforts on the development of automatic mesh generation techniques for general three-dimensional domains. The technical areas reviewed include: (i) issues associated with automatic mesh generation of CAD geometric models, (ii) local mesh modification procedures for improving mesh quality, (iii) advances in tetrahedral mesh generators, (iv) generation of anisotropic meshes, (v) hexahedral mesh generators, and (vi) implementation of automatic mesh generators on parallel computers.
