News Pointwise just completed its first ever Wallpaper Contest to celebrate meshing artistry. The contest gave people who generate meshes for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) with the Pointwise software a chance to show off the aesthetic aspects of their grids. It also allowed the CFD community to decide which grid was the most beautiful.
