Preparation of geometry models for meshing is essential to all mesh types. Pointwise supports both parametric (NURBS) and faceted (STL) geometry, imports a variety of native and neutral formats and offers two techniques for meshing over gaps; fault tolerant meshing and solid meshing.
You can generate structured multi-block, unstructured, hybrid, and overset meshes for viscous simulations with precise control over point placement and clustering to get the resolution you need. At the same time, Pointwise’s core meshing methods produce cells of high quality to ensure convergence and accuracy in your CFD solution.
Using Pointwise’s Glyph scripting language, you can automate most or all of the mesh generation process by writing macros and templates. And the software’s plug-in SDK gives you the ability to write a mesh exporter customized to your CFD solver. Between Glyph and plug-ins, you can customize the entire meshing process from geometry model import to flow solver export.
