Use Pointwise for Free for Your Collegiate Design Competitions

When you are competing in a design competition and are faced with real-world situations and timelines, you will need a CFD preprocessor that offers you quality grids in the shortest time possible.

Use Pointwise, the powerful CFD preprocessor chosen by top aerospace professionals. Pointwise has an intuitive interface offering advanced automation and flexible manual controls, and sophisticated grid generation algorithms. Pointwise will give you the competitive edge needed to turn your ideas into a winning design.

USF Racing, the University of South Florida’s Formula SAE team, used Pointwise and Pointwise’s Glyph scripting in 2015 to generate high-quality performance estimations for the vehicle's aerodynamic package. Pointwise gave the team the flexibility to tune the car's performance quickly for instant results.
