Recover After Meshing Goes Wrong

Meshing Forensics: How to Recover When Things Go Wrong

Based on the popularity of this topic as our special short course at one of our Pointwise User Group Meeting, Meshing Forensics is one webinar you won't want to miss. One attendee said this was his favorite training session, adding, “Meshing Forensics was fantastic with quick but essential tips.” Whether you are a new Pointwise user, a seasoned veteran, or using some other software, there will come a time when you run into a situation you did not expect. Fortunately, through a series of application-based examples, we will answer the question of how to generate the high-quality grid you need when things take a turn for the worse.

In this webinar we'll show you how to uncover the clues you need to solve the following vexing meshing mysteries:

  • I'm unable to split my model.
  • I can't find all the holes in my geometry.
  • That domain doesn't look quite right.
  • Hey, that domain just turned green.
  • My unstructured block won't initialize.
