latest version of their CFD meshing software Gridgen.
The cornerstone feature of Gridgen Version 14 is Glyph, a new Tcl-based scripting language. Using Glyph, engineers can create customized meshing applications and utilities that significantly reduce the effort required to perform a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis. "Glyph helps both expert and novice analysts", said John Chawner, Pointwise's president. "The novice analyst can use a customized, Glyph-scripted application that hides all the meshing details while the expert analyst can use Glyph to customize Gridgen for his or her way of working. In both cases Glyph allows the analyst to concentrate on the product, not the mesh."
Gridgen Version 14 also features Native CAD Import, import of CAD models in triangular (STL) format, automatic joining and decimation of surface meshes, baffle faces, a mirror transform, several new grid diagnostic functions, integration of the grid examine command with the elliptic solver, and export filters for CFD++, CRUNCH, and NCC.
