Pointwise 17.1 R4

The latest release of Pointwise’s computational fluid dynamics (CFD) meshing software is now compatible with the GridPro grid generator, the company has announced. The new version of Pointwise can import structured volume grids from GridPro’s file format so they can be integrated into a Pointwise hybrid mesh or otherwise modified. Pointwise also exports both structured and unstructured surface meshes to GridPro for use as geometry on which GridPro can generate a grid.

In addition, Pointwise version 17.1 R4 includes defect corrections and other new capabilities including a new native interface to the TAU CFD solver, a C++ API for writing plugins, support for OpenFOAM cell sets, and other minor features.
