Announcements Nick Wyman, director of applied research at Pointwise, Inc., will present and demonstrate new Gridgen capabilities for integration and visualization of overset grid assembly on Tuesday 5 January 2010 during the AIAA Aerospace Sciences Meeting and Exhibit in Orlando, FL.

His presentation will be at 5, 6:30 and 8 p.m. in the Pointwise hospitality suite.

The hospitality suite will be open from 4:30 to 10 p.m. on 5 January, with snacks and drinks provided.

Interested parties should check with the hotelís front desk for the suite number.

Wymanís presentation stems from a Phase 1 SBIR contact to be delivered in production code in early 2010.

Pointwise also will be showcasing its upcoming release of the Pointwise software, including solid meshing, with demonstrations at Booth 804 in the exhibit hall during the conference, which runs 4-8 January. The solid meshing suite of features represents an upgrade to the similar tools in Gridgen for solving the CAD interoperability problem by assembling, sometimes automatically, the CAD model into a topological solid, thereby closing gaps and overlaps.

Also, Pointwise will be raffling a Space Navigator 3D mouse from 3Dconnexion at the show. The 3D motion controller will be supported by Pointwise V16.03 and will be available for demonstration in the booth. To enter the drawing, conference attendees should deposit their business cards in the container at the Pointwise booth. The drawing will be held on Thursday, the last day of the exhibits. Winners need not be present to win.
