Pointwise User Group Meetings


The Pointwise User Group Meeting is a great opportunity to gather together for several days of sharing best practices, success stories, and expertise on mesh generation and computational fluid dynamics. It is an opportunity to meet virtually everyone at Pointwise to get their insight on meshing technology. We also get to learn from you the challenges you face in the daily application of CFD to real-world problems.

Pointwise User Group Meetings

Some of the world’s top computational fluid dynamics (CFD) engineers attended the Pointwise User Group Meetings because they have made Pointwise their choice for CFD meshing. The meetings included hands-on demos of Pointwise's latest features and included consultations with our expert staff to help solve our users' preprocessing issues.
