CFD meshing software

Pointwise Version 16.04 computational-fluid-dynamics (CFD) meshing software includes a wide-ranging set of new tools. For example, the surface meshing formulation of the T-Rex (anisotropic tetrahedral extrusion) hybrid meshing algorithm first developed for Pointwise’s Gridgen software now is available in Pointwise. There is also a new tool for moving individual grid points. Other new features include the capability to split and join faceted geometry models and the extension of the CAE plug-in API for writing your own CAE solver export to structured grid formats. The new release also includes 64-bit support on Mac OS X, annotation entities, printing to PNG, TIFF, and BMP files, and 11 new or updated CAE software interfaces.
