I'd like to use the petsc FAS for the finite element code in our group and all the data structure for mesh topology is all set. Thus I try to avoid all petsc data structure. As far as I know the FAS will construct the coarse solution based on DM for structured grid and DMPlex for unstructured grid as in ex12. Would it be possible to use FAS without using petsc DM/DMPlex by adding extra code? How much effort would you estimate? Thanks !

You can use a DMShell and just implement the needed grid transfer operations using your own data structures and then use the DMShellSetXXX interfaces to hook them up.
