Hi everyone I'm joke nice to meet you.

I'm learning how to use the pointwise (mesh generator software).
I have a problem on how to import points (such as airfoil data points) into pointwise. I've tried to change a lot of possible *.dat file format but still I can't.
Could anyoone guide me how to do ?

thank a lot

PS. Sorry for my english , it's very poor.

Best regard
Joke.

You'll need to use the segment file format. See pg 338 of the user manual for a description. The pseudo-code would be:

Code:
c.....nmax is the number of segments
c.....ni(n) is the number of points on segment n
c.....imax is the number of points

integer nmax
integer ni(nmax)
real x(imax), y(imax), z(imax)

do n = 1, nmax
    write(1,*) ni(n)
    do i = 1, ni(n)
       write(1,*) x(i,n), y(i,n), z(i,n)
    enddo
endo

I had a same problem

1st.
x, y, z are defined as 1D array but used as if 2D.

2nd.
anyway, an expected result are as below for example, 2 segments

max#
x1 y1 z1
x2 y2 z2
x3 y3 z3
...
xmax ymax zmax

max#
x1 y1 z1
x2 y2 z2
x3 y3 z3
...
xmax ymax zmax

it works
mm.abdollahzadeh and philocfd like this.
