News Pointwise is announcing a new collaboration with DreeseCode Software, makers of the DesignFOIL software for airfoil and wing design and preliminary analysis. The collaboration includes DreeseCode's addition of Gridgen export to DesignFOIL and Pointwise's addition of a script for automatic CFD grid generation to their Glyph Script Exchange.

"We are thrilled to be working with a domain expert like DreeseCode," said John Chawner, Pointwise's president. "Through our partnership, we can facilitate the path to CFD for their customers by providing an automatic meshing application."

Pointwise's Glyph scripting language lets customers and partners develop macros and templates for Gridgen. A fully automatic meshing template for DesignFOIL has been developed and posted to the Glyph Script Exchange on Pointwise's web site.

John Dreese, president of DreeseCode Software LLC, said "Gridgen is the industry standard for preprocessing. And having a standard allows 3rd party developers like DreeseCode Software to focus on the niche specialties that we do best. Partnering with Pointwise is a win-win situation for all of our customers. Working with Pointwise has been very pleasant; the staff is knowledgeable, personable, and focused on customer satisfaction."
