Software & Services

for CFD Mesh Generation


Pointwise is the choice for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) meshing, covering all aspects of preprocessing from geometry model import to flow solver export. Available for Windows, Linux, and Mac, you can generate structured, overset, unstructured, high-order and hybrid meshes including our anisotropic tetrahedral extrusion (T-Rex) technique for highly-automated generation of boundary layer resolving hybrid meshes.

Pointwise Viewer

Use the freely available Pointwise Viewer to view virtually any mesh file in 3-D, display it in various styles, and compute any of dozens of mesh quality metrics. Built-in mesh importers are available for two dozen formats and you can display the meshes however best suits your needs. There are tools available for measuring distances. And you can assess your mesh's quality by computing and displaying a wide variety of metrics.

Consulting & Projects

We can customize Pointwise for your requirements, develop an automated meshing template using Glyph scripting, create macros to automate parts of your meshing process, write a custom interface to your CFD solver, or generate meshes when you want help.

Y+ Calculator

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 (CFD) computations.
