News The latest release of Pointwise’s computational fluid dynamics (CFD) mesh generation software, while primarily a maintenance release, includes new graphics capabilities.

"CFD meshes are notable for resolving very small length scales and doing so on complex geometry, both of which pose visualization challenges," said Pointwise's president, John Chawner.

“To address the former, the software's graphics are now double precision by default. With respect to the latter, transparency is now an attribute that can be applied to the display of geometry and mesh surfaces.”

The new transparency display attribute has been applied to these guide vanes in the duct mesh from the 3rd AIAA Propulsion Aerodynamics Workshop.

Pointwise Version 18.0 R3 also includes over two dozen smaller new features and several bug fixes.

Pointwise, Inc. is solving the top problem facing computational fluid dynamics (CFD) today – reliably generating high-fidelity meshes. The company's Pointwise software generates structured, unstructured and hybrid meshes; interfaces with CFD solvers such as ANSYS FLUENT, STAR-CCM+, OpenFOAM®, and SU2 as well as many neutral formats, such as CGNS; runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac, and has a scripting language, Glyph, that can automate CFD meshing. Large manufacturing firms and research organizations worldwide have relied on Pointwise as their complete CFD preprocessing solution since 1994.
