The Connector was our email newsletter until 2017. This archive includes articles about CFD mesh generation using software from Pointwise, software releases, events, customer and partner CFD applications, and tips to keep you productive.
Pointwise Version 17.1 R2 is now available for production use. In addition to many resolved issues, this release includes a refactored cell-count reducing technique inside the T-Rex hybrid mesher. T-Rex (anisotropic tetrahedral extrusion) generates layers of anisotropic tetrahedra, every three of which theoretically can be combined into a prism.
As you are updating your calendar with the coming months' events such as Valentine's Day and St. Patty's Day, don't forget to add the most important event for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) meshers: the Pointwise User Group Meeting.
