**General Questions and Answers / Optimization using initial steps**

using initial steps for dft calculation greatly reduces the time when we have to calculate for a higher mesh cutoff, but can we apply the same technique for geometry optimization

....e.g only varying the mesh cutoff in the calculator and making use of previous calculations by using initial steps and then using the optimizer
