“Building on the integration of overset grid assembly in our previous release, we have enhanced Pointwise's ability to generate structured overset grids,” said Dr. John Steinbrenner, Pointwise's vice president for research and development. “Our customers now have a wider variety of boundary conditions with which to control extrusion of hexahedral grids and more topologies into which they can be configured.” These new features are based on Pointwise's unique hexahedral extrusion method based on the solution of hyperbolic partial differential equations.

This new release of Pointwise is also compatible with the Leap Motion Controller. This compact USB device from Leap Motion senses your hand gestures and can be used with Pointwise to pan, zoom, and rotate your mesh. The first two customers to register and add a Pointwise license in the three months following the release of V17.3 R2 will receive a Leap Motion Controller for free. Registration for this promotion is at www.pointwise.com/leap where you can also find a video of the device in action.

Other features in Pointwise Version 17.3 R2 include new or improved support for AERO-F from CMSoft, ANSYS Fluent, Exodus-II, and Thermal Desktop from C&R Technologies plus several user experience enhancements.

Pointwise, Inc. is solving the top problem facing computational fluid dynamics (CFD) today - reliably generating high-fidelity meshes. The company's Pointwise software generates structured, unstructured and hybrid meshes; interfaces with CFD solvers, such as ANSYS FLUENT, STAR-CCM+, ANSYS CFX, OpenFOAM, and SU2 as well as many neutral formats, such as CGNS; runs on Windows (Intel and AMD), Linux (Intel and AMD), and Mac, and has a scripting language, Glyph, that can automate CFD meshing. Large manufacturing firms and research organizations worldwide rely on Pointwise as their complete CFD preprocessing solution.
