Pointwise has the capability to set up parameters for and execute
automatically an external overset grid assembler software. Specifically you
can interface directly between Pointwise and PEGASUS 5 or Suggar++. Note
that these assemblers are not provided with Pointwise and must be obtained
separately from their respective sources.
Additional overset functionality is provided in the Pointwise GUI and is
available only after an assembler software has been chosen via the
Attributes tab of the Overset command panel. These additional capabilities
are specifically found in the File, Export; File, Import;
Examine; and Cae, Set boundary conditions commands. In order
to successfully connect to and execute the chosen assembler software, it is
necessary to perform some minor setup covered in this appendix.
