Announcements Pointwise will premiere a Let’s Talk Meshing webcast entitled, Mastering Geometry Cleanup Tasks in Pointwise on 26 October at 10 a.m. CDT (GMT -5).

Afterwards, from 11 a.m. - noon, our Pointwise engineer who created the webcast will be available online to answer your questions.

Importing and manipulating CAD geometry in Pointwise to make it more suitable for meshing is not always well understood, and it sometimes may seem coincidental when you finally assemble your surfaces into a solid model. This webcast aims to remove any ambiguities involving the suite of CAD tools available in Pointwise. Participants should come away with a better understanding of the geometry creation and editing utilities available to them, how to better anticipate their behavior, and how to identify situations that can influence meshing decisions.

This webcast uses complex, practical CAD examples to demonstrate how to:

  • Leverage the updated Import Database panel in Pointwise V18, and let Pointwise detect suitable tolerances automatically for you
  • Visualize model tolerances using new Examine metrics and discover how they can influence meshing decisions
  • Identify and heal gaps in geometry to expedite watertight model assembly prior to meshing
  • Apply strategies for identifying and recreating missing and untrimmed surfaces
  • Distinguish whether your imported geometry is ready for meshing and discover why some potential issues are not apparent in your CAD application

Details on the webcast and Q&A participation can be found at

The event will be hosted by Zach Davis, a member of the Sales and Marketing team.

Let's Talk Meshing events encompass various communication channels, including interactive forums, webinars, and webcasts that inform and equip Pointwise users.
