Video Learning: You Choose What and When

Ramp up your computational fluid dynamics (CFD) skills with Pointwise videos while accommodating your schedule, your skill level and your professional needs. Choose a fast, task-oriented session, sit in on a webinar, learn more about high-level features, or visit our archives.

Webinars

Where to find it: www.pointwise.com/webinar

When you have time to spend an hour exploring all the details of a particular feature set, our webinar archive should be your destination. Each webinar includes

  • Background information on the methodology
  • Demonstration of the tool's application
  • A Q&A session exploring all aspects of the feature

There are two webinars in the archive now.

  • Working with Dirty CAD While Meshing a Naval Ship Hull demonstrates
    • Fault Tolerant Meshing and generating a mesh without repairing the CAD
    • Solid Meshing in which creating a watertight solid of the geometry makes surface meshing even easier
    • Geometry modeling tools for creating and replacing CAD geometry.
  • Quick High-Quality Meshing for Axial Pumps shows why Pointwise is ideally suited for rotating machinery, including the generation of high-quality meshes in the presence of fillets and other geometry.
See why Pointwise is ideally suited for rotating machinery with this axial pump webinar.

Do It Yourself Training

Where to find it: www.pointwise.com/DIY

These fast-paced training videos - usually just a couple of minutes long - get information in your hands quickly. For example:

  • How to draw connectors that span multiple database surfaces
  • How to create an unstructured domain with holes

Each video has step-by-step instructions and illustrations that document each step so you can follow along and quickly get back to work.

DIY training can show you how to create high aspect ratio surface meshes with T-Rex.

High Level Feature Demos

Where to find it: www.pointwise.com/videos

When you want to become more familiar with some of the high level features in Pointwise and their impact on common meshing problems, our demo videos probably should be your first stop. In only a couple minutes you can

  • Find out more about how T-RexTM (anisotropic tetrahedral extrusion) automates generation of hybrid boundary layer meshes
  • Learn how Pointwise interfaces with your CFD solver
  • And much more
Discover why Solid Meshing is a great tool for addressing CAD data problems.
