Pointwise V18 Interactive Training Sessions at the Pointwise User Group Meeting

FORT WORTH, TX (25 July 2016) – Attendees at the Pointwise User Group Meeting will be some of the first people in the world to learn about the latest features in the new Pointwise V18 release. The Pointwise User Group Meeting is being held in Fort Worth on 21-22 September 2016.

Attendees will participate in a full day of interactive training sessions in Pointwise V18. The suite of new features is a major step forward in capabilities and includes quad-dominant surface meshing, unstructured hexahedral T-Rex (anisotropic tetrahedral extrusion), fully hybrid blocks containing combined T-Rex hexahedra, prisms, pyramids and tetrahedra, additional control over cell sizes inside tetrahedral blocks using shapes and sources, as well as enhancements to Examine, File I/O, and license management. The training will end with a short course on mastering geometry cleanup tasks in Pointwise, which will assist in a better understanding of geometry creation and editing utilities, how to better anticipate their behavior, and how to identify situations that can influence meshing decisions.
