Pointwise Tutorial Workbook Image

Tutorial Workbook Files

The Tutorial Workbook is automatically included with each Pointwise installation and is accessible through the Pointwise interface via the Help menu. We recommend that you follow the beginner, intermediate, and advanced tutorials within the workbook to learn about common Pointwise commands and workflows.

Most tutorials in the workbook use at least one initial file - typically either a CAD file (e.g. .iges, .stl) or a Pointwise project file (.pw). Some tutorials also offer intermediate and final Pointwise project files that allow you to compare your work with the intended tutorial results. All tutorial files can be downloaded in .tgz format by clicking below.
