An Introduction to Pointwise Plugin Development

[10 Jun 2015] In this Let's Talk Meshing webcast, we present an introduction to writing a Pointwise plugin using the CAE plugin software development kit (SDK). The SDK is an application programming interface (API) that you can use to program Pointwise to export your mesh to your solver-specific format. Plugins written using the SDK integrate seamlessly into the Pointwise user interface and can also be accessed using Glyph, our scripting language.

During the webcast we will share information on

  • Best practices for creating your SDK environment
  • References and techniques for determining the relevant SDK commands and syntax
  • Downloading, installing and configuring the SDK
  • Creating a plugin project
  • Accessing Pointwise's grid model
  • Building and distributing your plugin
