Introducing Unstructured Hexahedral Extrusion in Pointwise V17.2

[03 June 2014] See how Pointwise V17.2 will help you quickly generate unstructured hexahedral boundary layer meshes using T-Rex (anisotropic tetrahedral extrusion). The latest release of Pointwise also provides automated tools for creating unstructured domains with multiple faces and baffles and for mirroring grids on export. Additional new features include new export support for CGNS, FUN3D and other popular formats.
