Native OpenFOAM interface in Pointwise
The CAE mesher, Pointwise (same name as company), now has a native OpenFOAM export interface. This means users no longer have to export their grids to an intermediate format and use one of the conversion applications from OpenFOAM.

Pointwise, Inc. has received increasing interest in using Pointwise and Gridgen with OpenFOAM. Since participating in the OpenFOAM Workshop this past summer in Milan, Pointwise, Inc has maintained active communication with Prof. Jasak. Prof. Jasak visited Pointwise, Inc in early November 2008 and implemented the native interface. The latest release of Pointwise is the first public version with the OpenFOAM interface.

Many people know Pointwise, Inc for Gridgen. However, Pointwise our next generation meshing software for CAE from Pointwise, Inc. and has been in production use for more than a year. We have combined the reliable CFD meshing in Gridgen with modern software techinques to bring you the eponymous Pointwise - a major advancement in gridding capability. In addition to the high quality grid techniques we have always had, you will appreciate Pointwise's flat interface, automated grid assembly, and full undo and redo capabilities.

Drop me a line if you want to know more about Pointwise.

Thanks, Chris
