The webinar will demonstrate how to:
  • Create layers of unstructured hexahedral cells with T-Rex.
  • Use structured domains in Match boundary conditions for T-Rex initialization.
  • Automatically create unstructured blocks with multiple closed and baffle faces.
  • Use the shading light source control tool to change how entities are shaded.
  • Mirror symmetric grids automatically on export.
  • Export to FUN3D, SC/Tetra V9 and Gambit neutral file formats.
  • Use the upgraded CGNS v3.1.4 and NASTRAN export formats.
  • Use the new Draw Curve toolbar button with pull-down list.
