Run 'pip install pybind11' before installing meshpy. (I'm trying to make
it so that's not required, but no luck so far.)

Tetgen at one point had support for periodicity, but it was
removed. Triangle never did support periodicity well.

That's tough to answer competently in this short (and public) format,
and there's plenty of good advice already out there. Plus, the market is
heavily segmented. My read is that the market for computational
engineers (you, I'm guessing) and numerics people (me) don't quite work
the same, so I'm not sure if anything I say might be useful.
