[08 Dec 2010] Pointwise reduces the time needed for mesh completion with its flexible techniques for dealing with dirty geometry. In this 45 minute webinar, you will learn how to deal with and clean up the geometry on the U.S. Navy Surface Combatant DTMB 5415 ship hull.

Topics covered in this webinar include

  • Automate cleanup of gaps and overlaps in CAD models using Fault Tolerant Meshing
  • Quickly produce watertight geometry with Solid Meshing and use it to speed up the meshing process
  • Generate missing CAD geometry with Pointwise geometry creation tools
  • Make a grid when you do not have a CAD model
