FORT WORTH, TX (13 December 2012)— With the 51st AIAA Aerospace Sciences Meeting being held in its backyard, Pointwise is extending Texas hospitality to meeting attendees by hosting some special activities, beginning with a free Glyph Scripting Seminar on Sunday, 6 January at the Gaylord Texan Convention Center in Grapevine, TX.
Additionally, there will be 30-minute live demonstrations of Pointwise’s most popular grid generation features and techniques at the Pointwise booth (113) between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Wednesday, 9 January.
Pointwise also will host a reception that evening from 4 to 6:30 p.m., with refreshments and opportunities to talk with Pointwise staff. For more details, including location of the reception, attendees are invited to stop by the Pointwise booth on Tuesday or Wednesday.
The seminar on Sunday will demonstrate how to automate your meshing using Pointwise’s Glyph Scripting language, making your computational fluid dynamics (CFD) work faster and easier. Glyph is a full programming language with control constructs and commands for all of Pointwise's operations. It is based on the general scripting language, Tcl/Tk. The seminar will include an overview of the Tcl/Tk language and instruction in how to script the most common meshing operations and generate basic Tk interfaces.
This seminar is suitable for intermediate to advanced users. The class will begin at 8:30 a.m. and end at 4:30 p.m.
The seminar is free, but advance registration is required. The deadline for registration is 2 January. To register, go to www.pointwise.com/asm.
Demonstrations in the exhibit hall on 9 January will include
- Cleaning up Dirty CAD
- Unstructured Surface Mesh Generation
- T-Rex Volume Meshing
- Structured Surface Mesh Generation
- Extrusions for Overset Meshes
- Smoothing Structured Meshes
- Mesh Metrics
- Scripting Application
