Harpoon Integrates Surface Wrapping Technology

News Sharc Ltd has announced the release of new wrapping software which has been included in the latest version of Harpoon.

Harpoon meshes dirty CAD geometry with ease, however, there are occasions when a wrapper combined with the power of Harpoon would make meshing even easier. In particular, large holes in the CAD can cause problems when creating a mesh. The Harpoon Wrapper alleviates these problems and just like Harpoon, is extremely quick

Underhood Thermal Management is an application where these problems are evident as the geometry is extremely complex, containing many holes, intersecting and overlapping surfaces and in some cases, actual physical parts may be missing.

Harpoon’s new Wrapper feature envelopes the geometry in a single closed surface which can then be used as a base to generate the final surface and volume mesh. This function has advantages such as ensuring a watertight ‘hole free’ surface mesh, removing intersecting/overlapping surfaces and allowing automatic de-featuring of complex parts not required for the analysis.

This new addition to Harpoon's ever growing feature-set builds on the philosophy of fast, automatic meshing by allowing integration of the wrapping feature along with full grid generation into a scripted process which can provide massive time savings for optimization studies.

This new wrapper technology is available free of charge to existing Harpoon users. Trial versions are also available for interested parties.
