Pointwise Webcast will Show-Off Updates in Grid Extrusions and Boundary Conditions

FORT WORTH, TX (16 Jun 2015) - Pointwise will premiere a Let's Talk Meshing webcast entitled, “Grid Extrusions & Boundary Conditions: What's New?” on 30 June at 10 a.m. Afterwards from 11 a.m. - noon, our Pointwise engineer, John Dreese, who created the video and John Steinbrenner, vice president of research and development, will be available online to answer your questions.

The latest Pointwise release has several new features. Among these are updates to extrusions and extrusion boundary conditions. The boundary conditions in particular are now more similar to NASA's HYPGEN code. Other updates help you extrude off a complicated geometry. In this video, we will demonstrate how each can make your life easier and save you time.

In this Let's Talk Meshing webcast, you will learn about

  • Floating X BC
  • Floating Y BC
  • Floating Z BC
  • Extrusions from Domains with Poles
