The following shows my dcb specimen. It has a triangular infill I generated using facets
Here are my mesh settings:
I also have a face sizing object for the two faces on the front and back of the specimen, and then another for the rest of faces. This is because I need the same number of elements on the top and bottom of the crack interface.
Even after an hour, the mesh progress is still the same:
I've completed a simulation with the same mesh settings on a DCB without the infill and it ran perfectly. Now, with the infill, I am running into this issue. How can I fix this (do I maybe just need to wait longer)?
Thanks in advance!

The number of faces increased by a factor of several 100 so it's reasonable to have a similar increase in meshing time.

I waited overnight for the mesh to generate and it's still stuck "meshing edges (4/4)". Is this normal?

You can use DesignModeler to count the number of faces or edges.
Cut your model down by a factor of 100 and see if meshing will complete.

I have also the same problem with my model. It takes almost 2 days now and still ongoing! I know that it is a complex model but I want to know whether it is normal to take such a long time or not.
and can you give me some tips on how to reduce meshing time? (mesh resolution is already set to the lowest)

I did two things to reduce meshing time. First, as peteroznewman said, I decreased the number of faces in my model, significantly. Without doing so, I also would be running my model for 2 day +.
Also, use parallel processing if your CPU supports it, this also decreased my simulation time (I re-ran my simulation on a computer with 20 cores to parallelize, so it really helped me)
