“Pointwise makes it simple to create high-quality meshes and gives the user great control over grid construction for complex models. Their support team is easy to work with and can always point me in the right direction.”
“Pointwise is exactly what anyone expects from their meshing software: simple, fast, flexible, and robust. Add the Glyph scripting interface and you obtain the perfect tool for a complete and automated CFD workflow.”
“Pointwise, together with Glyph scripting, makes the mesh generation step in our parametric design and optimization workflow easier and more robust giving us more confidence in our results.”
“The flexibility of Pointwise renders it unparalleled both for academia and industry when it comes to meshing. We’ve used its meshing capabilities for projects as complex as ship propellers to hydropower forebays, fish passages, locks, combustion chambers, and projects as fundamental as channel flows and gravity currents.”
“The powerful meshing capability that Pointwise provides has been a great asset to our team. In addition, its flexibility has made integration with the rest of our tools remarkably easy.”
“Pointwise's bottom-up meshing methodology inherently gives the user greater control over the surface, capturing its details, eliminating the post-meshing anomalies that result from using a top-down meshing methodology, saving a great amount of time (and frustration).”
“Pointwise has been a game changer for us. It has enabled us to generate grids for complex geometries far faster and with greater control.”
“Pointwise has always been my go-to meshing software. It gives the user fantastic control over grid spacing, cell shapes, transitions, etc. I love the ability to script repetitive tasks as well as the fact that new and useful features keep showing up in new releases.”
“Pointwise has saved me endless hours of mesh cleanup, and without Pointwise, I would probably need two people working full time for mesh cleanup.”
“I like that Pointwise is fast, produces high-quality meshes, it is user-friendly and compatible with several commercial CFD codes.”
“In general, I love Pointwise and the quality of the software and support team. I have worked with the Pointwise staff for many years now and have always found them a great group of people to work with.”
“I really like the user interface in Pointwise. It is very easy to adjust the specific grid elements I need. I also like how capable the Glyph scripting interface is.”
“In Pointwise, I like the user-friendly interface and the rapidity to use it for a beginner. I also appreciate to meet the developers in scientific conferences (AIAA), they have a research approach of the software (not only a commercial one).”
“Pointwise has excellent CAD import, geometry and grid manipulation tools, and makes grid generation very easy!”
Since 1984, mesh generation software from Pointwise and its co-founders has been used for CFD preprocessing on applications as diverse as aerodynamic performance of the F-35 Lightning II and reducing fish mortality rates in a hydroelectric project.
Pointwise's meshing software has been applied to virtually every major military aircraft and spacecraft in the last 30 years including the F-16, F-15, F-18, F-22, F-35, F-117, B-2, E-2C, P-3C, Space Shuttle, Space Station and more.

Now you can compute wall spacing while at your desk or while on the road with the Y+ Calculator for iPhone or Android. This free app is a handy tool for calculating the grid spacing at a wall to achieve a target y+ value for viscous computational fluid dynamics (CFD) computations. Simply specify the flow conditions, the desired y+ value, and compute your grid spacing. The Y+ Calculator converts between SI and Imperial units.
