Your earlier point, ERTW, about modeling spheres as known problem solutions is actually a great idea!

So what was the trick for cutting computation time?
Actually Bob, the sphere example is in the software tutorial

It seems there is no trick I need a multicore cpu! Volvo quotes 500 to 1000 iterations for solid results, however, they did complex bodies and I'm doing simple shapes I find that the solver never quite converges - it just oscillates about a value. It 'stabilizes' within 10 iterations I should take the average of a bunch of data points.

My research yesterday totally blew me away! ...
