Create Your Own Custom Interface

Pointwise's CAE Plugin SDK is how you could write your own custom exporter of grid and boundary conditions. Rather than utilize a neutral format, a CAE plugin can be written to provide exactly the format you need. A plugin is perfect for research codes that change frequently or proprietary formats for which you want to limit use.
