Pointwise Viewer

Pointwise Viewer

Use the freely available Pointwise Viewer to view virtually any mesh file in 3-D, display it in a variety of styles, and compute any of dozens of mesh quality metrics. Built-in mesh importers are available for two dozen formats, including CGNS, FUN3D, OpenFOAM, SU2, UGRID, and more. If your mesh format isn't available, an SDK is available for you to write your own mesh importer that appears in the GUI automatically at startup. The meshes can be displayed however best suits your needs: wireframe, hidden line, solid fill, or shaded. Tools are available for measuring distances. And you can assess your mesh's quality by computing and displaying a wide variety of metrics, including Jacobian, skewness, size ratios, and more. Pointwise Viewer also provides geometry model viewing capability for models in ACIS, CATIA, Creo, IGES, STEP, SolidWorks, STL, and other formats.
