Pointwise Releases Gridgen V14 Beta

Grid Generation The latest version of Pointwise's flagship CFD pre-processor, Gridgen, was recently released for beta testing. Gridgen V14 marks a major enhancement to the Gridgen software.

The most significant new feature is the Glyph scripting language. Glyph is an advanced "high level" language which will provide users with the ability to generate CFD grids parametrically. Glyph also features a journaling capability which allows playback of an interactive Gridgen session.

"CAE analysts have been pushing for better integration of CFD into the design process for years", said John Chawner, Pointwise's president. "By working closely with customers very early in the development cycle we were able to develop Glyph with capabilities that meet their specific requirements for customization, automation, and interoperability."

Another feature added to Gridgen for V14 is the ability to import native CAD files from a number of popular CAD programs. The ability to skip neutral file formats, such as IGES, streamlines the CFD process for Gridgen users.

In addition, this version of Gridgen will allow users to treat faceted triangular surfaces as geometry for mesh generation. Gridgen supports faceted surfaces in STL, VRML and other popular formats.
