Grid Generation Pointwise announces the addition of a native Tecplot interface to their Gridgen CFD meshing software.

“We recently polled our customers and asked about which file formats they use for data exchange within their CFD process,” says John Chawner, Pointwise’s president. “The file format most requested was the Tecplot native PLT file. So that’s exactly what we added to Gridgen Version 15.10.”

Using the native interface, Gridgen users can seamlessly migrate their mesh data to Tecplot to take advantage of its special visualization capabilities.

"Tecplot and Pointwise have many customers in common that use Tecplot 360 and Gridgen in their daily work. Our two companies have been working together to improve the integration of our products to increase the productivity of our common customers," says Mike Peery, president of Tecplot, Inc. "Working with the people at Pointwise has been a delight for they share our values in doing the right thing for our customers."
