News The latest release of Pointwise’s computational fluid dynamics (CFD) mesh generation software, while primarily a maintenance release, includes a new script customization capability.

"Customers have been very prolific in their use of Pointwise’s Glyph scripting to automate mesh generation by writing macros and templates," said Pointwise’s president, John Chawner. "They can now install their scripts on the toolbar for quick, 1-button access."

Pointwise Version 18.0 R4 will also render geometry models 2-4x faster through the use of multi-threading, include a new mesh metric for non-orthogonality, support CGNS files in HDF5 format, and include more than a dozen other small features.
