The default mesh type for Autodesk Simulation Mechanical (formerly known as ALGOR) is a "brick" mesh which is a hexahedral dominant mesh type.

Give it a few years and they will be a power in this area. That said, they need to think about things like hexahedral elements. It is not impressive to see rectangular geometry meshed with millions of tetrahedral elements, when a model with 10k hexas would give the same resut at far less solution cost. Look at what ANSYS and ABAQUS are doing.
