Gridgen Now Available for Windows Vista

FORT WORTH, TX (10 May 2007) – Pointwise announced today the availability of its CFD meshing software, Gridgen, for workstations running the Windows Vista operating system.

"We're happy to bring reliable CFD meshing to the Vista desktop," said John Steinbrenner, Vice President of Research and Development. "This not only provides our customers with the benefits of the latest Windows release, but also adds another option for how they deploy their Gridgen software." Gridgen is available for Windows Vista, XP, and 2000 in addition to Linux, Mac OS X, and several varieties of Unix.

Because Gridgen's look-and-feel, native files, and license management are heterogeneous across platforms, customers should be able to run seamlessly on Vista today without any changes to their current installation or licenses.

Pointwise, Inc. is solving the top problem facing engineering analysts today: mesh generation for computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Pointwise's Gridgen software generates structured, unstructured, and hybrid meshes; interfaces with CFD solvers such as FLUENT, STAR-CD, and ANSYS CFX as well as many neutral formats such as CGNS; runs on Windows (Intel and AMD), Linux (Intel and AMD), Mac, and Unix; and has a scripting language that can automate CFD meshing. Large manufacturing firms and research organizations worldwide rely on Gridgen as their complete CFD preprocessing toolkit. More information about Gridgen is available on Pointwise's website,
