CAE Menu

The CAE menu lets you choose the Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) software for which you wish to export your completed grid. It also provides tools for specifying boundary and volume conditions for the CAE software.

The CAE menu provides options and tools for exporting your grid.
 

Note: It is possible for you to create your own export routines and have them linked directly to Pointwise to export your meshing projects in your own format. See the Special Topics, Plugin-SDK section for more information about creating a CAE plugin.

 

Note: Since CAE export is based on your selection, you can export any portion of your grid to your CAE solver by selecting only those blocks you wish to export prior to using the File, Export, CAE command.
