FORT WORTH, TX, May 18, 2017 – The latest release of Pointwise’s computational fluid dynamics (CFD) mesh generation software, while primarily a maintenance release, includes new graphics capabilities.

The new transparency display attribute has been applied to these guide vanes in the duct mesh from the 3rd AIAA Propulsion Aerodynamics Workshop.

“CFD meshes are notable for resolving very small length scales and doing so on complex geometry, both of which pose visualization challenges,” said Pointwise’s president, John Chawner. “To address the former, the software’s graphics are now double precision by default. With respect to the latter, transparency is now an attribute that can be applied to the display of geometry and mesh surfaces.”

Pointwise version 18.0 R3 also includes over two dozen smaller new features and several bug fixes.
