Optimal Solutions' Sculptor complements Pointwise's CFD meshing software.

Optimal Solutions Software, LLC, offers Sculptor a CFD design program that provides the ability to parameterize CFD models and perform real-time shape deformation without the need to revisit the CAD model. When coupled with design optimization algorithms, Sculptor performs automatic CFD shape optimization. These tools help eliminate the numerous iterations inherent in the design process were one modifies the CAD model, remeshes, and then completes the CFD analysis. Optimal Solutions' Arbitrary Shape Deformation (ASD) technology used by Sculptor automatically, in real-time, alters shapes that are typically very complex and hard to manipulate into designs that improve performance - without having to remesh. The deformations are smooth and volumetric to maintain cell quality for the CFD calculations. When coupled with Pointwise's reliable CFD meshing, Sculptor helps find more accurate designs in less time, resulting in appreciable amounts of time and money being saved. www.gosculptor.com
