In another post Martin said the development of these was completely outside of Z88 team.
I have been wandering around google and found this Netgen example:
OpenCascade IGES and STEP support
The integration of the OpenCascade open source geometry kernel by Open CASCADE S.A. into NETGEN offers access to IGES/STEP geometry files support.
There are no problems with STL traingles here.
Question: Will this level of Netgen ever find its way into Z88 Aurora or is only for commercial software.
the open cascade support is already implemented, this is the aurora modul called "geocon". The quality of the netgen mesh strongly depend on the cad model. From Pro/Engineer models we already have such "beautiful" meshes. So unfortunatelly nothing new to improve the continua support.
But there is another mesher called "Gmesh". Open Source, looks good and it has the opportunity to create netgen meshes and put them to aurora. But always the same problem, we haven´t enough time to play with it.

Concerning the NET-TET path, while it's consistent and produce excelent final results; as pointed by Aurora Ico, there are some geometries that are not easy to be imported and meshed in Netgen Gui. I tested several STEP and IGS versions and the more accurate is IGS 5.2, but this one is not easyly available. On the other hand, there's several issues of the initial model that have to be regarded at the CAD stage. At the report I've offered you there is a list of these issues and the way for manage them. If you want to learn more about this, please write me to email@example.com so I can send you this report.
A big thanks from me for that excellant procedure - very informative. It has made a massive difference in getting a speedy first time successful Tetgen mesh.
I'm very happy now..
- now getting the idea...
