“We’ve received lots of great feedback from customers since the launch of Pointwise Version 17.0 and even though R2 is a minor release, we were able to address some of their needs now instead of waiting for the next major release,” said John Chawner, Pointwise’s president.

“Supporting new native interfaces is extremely important. SU˛ is a new, yet already popular open-source CFD code and NSU3D is the well-respected aerospace code from Prof. Dimitri Mavriplis. ShipIR takes us into a new application area – thermal signature analysis.”

Also included in Pointwise Version 17.0 R2 are some smaller features and many resolved issues.
