FORT WORTH, TX (17 Nov. 2010)—Dr. Chris Sideroff will demonstrate Pointwise’s flexible techniques for dealing with dirty geometry during a free webinar at 11 a.m. CST on 8 Dec. 2010. The 45-minute webinar will show how to manage and clean up the geometry on the U.S. Navy Surface Combatant DTMB 5415 ship hull.

Among the techniques demonstrated during the webinar are automating cleanup of gaps and overlaps in CAD models using Fault Tolerant Meshing, producing watertight geometry with Solid Meshing and using it to speed up the meshing process, and generating missing CAD geometry with Pointwise geometry creation tools. How to make a grid when there is no CAD model also will be demonstrated.
