Upon import Harpoon will tessellate the geometric entities according to a set of user controllable preferences. The imported geometry will retain the layer association defined in the CAD file and will even replicate colour schemes where possible.
New features also include:
Major improvements to the recently introduced optimisation algorithms allowing users to increase convergence with their most complicated geometries.
Improved boundary layer
The boundary layer function has undergone significant development over the past 6 months resulting in more robust boundary layer creation with less incidence of going to zero and rapid height fluctuation (see example below)
Boundary Layer Prior to improvements.
Boundary Layer with Harpoon Version 3.
Even more of Harpoon’s commands are now available in Batch. This brings users of Harpoon a step closer to true black box meshing with complicated geometry.
Harpoon now supports software rendering allowing users to pipe graphics to different machines.
Numerous (behind the scenes) improvements to the automatic meshing and hole fixing algorithms
Harpoon evaluations are available now. If you are interested in speeding up your design process why not book a demo?
Founded in 1997, Manchester based Sharc is a developer of pre-processor software for finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Its flagship Harpoon mesher produces high quality body-fitted hex meshes. The automatic generation of hex dominant volume meshes and/or quad dominant surface meshes bypasses the need for time consuming surface mesh generation and grid density specification.
