Products & Services for CFD Mesh Generation
Pointwise's products and services help you solve the top top problem facing engineering analysts today: grid generation for computational fluid dynamics (CFD), finite element analysis (FEA), and other numerical simulations.
Whether you're seeking a software solution that provides comprehensive meshing capability from geometry export to flow solver export or assistance generating meshes, automating meshing, or customizing your tools, Pointwise can help.
Mesh & Grid Generation Software
License Once, Get Two Products Together
Our two software products for mesh generation, Pointwise and Gridgen, are bundled - license one and the other is included at no extra cost. You choose which one to use based on your needs (what specific feature set do you need) and your preference (which interface and work flow do you prefer). You can focus on the CFD, not on the tool.
Pointwise is our next-generation product, the future of reliable CFD meshing software. It integrates 26 years of meshing technology development with a modern software framework and interface and provides tools like 64-bit support, multi-threading, and Windows/Linux/Mac portability. (more)
Gridgen is our classic mesh generation software. In a highly automated manner Gridgen generates structured hexahedral grids, unstructured tetrahedral meshes, and hybrid meshes including prisms and pyramids. Gridgen integrates nicely into a design environment with its open access to CAD geometry; fault tolerant meshing and solid modeling; Windows, Linux, Mac, and Unix, portability; templates and macros; and native interfaces to CFD solvers.

CFD Meshing Services & Support
Glyph Script Exchange: The scripting language in Gridgen and Pointwise provides procedural access to all the functionality so that customized tools and templates can be developed. Journaling is available to produce a scripted record of your interactive session and the ability to define and use variables provides parametric capability. The Script Exchange is an open forum provides a wide variety of scripted meshing tools for you to download and run today. (more)
Training: Come up to speed on the latest tools and techniques or take an opportunity to learn the software from the ground up. Courses are held in Fort Worth, around the country, and at your site. (more)
Teaching Partnership: Recognized academic customers are eligible for free licenses of the software for use in a class or lab including training materials and other educational aids. (more)
Grid Generation & Custom Software Development
Custom Development: Our Applied Research team can customize the software for your requirements, develop an automated meshing template using scripting, create macros to automate parts of your meshing process, write a custom interface to your CFD solver, or generate meshes when you want help. (more)
