Let’s Talk Meshing Features Introduction to Meshing Automation via Scripting

FORT WORTH, TX, Feb 3, 2015 — Introduction to Glyph Scripting, a means to customize mesh generation for computational fluid dynamics, will be the focus of a Pointwise Let’s Talk Meshing interactive forum at 10 a.m. CST (GMT -6) on 11 February. A prerecorded video will be posted online at that time and the Pointwise engineers will be available for a live discussion.  Let’s Talk Meshing events encompass various communication channels, including interactive forums, webinars and videos, that inform and equip Pointwise users.

This video will include a basic introduction to scripting in Pointwise and will lay the framework for customization of the meshing process using scripts. Scripting in Pointwise is accomplished with Glyph, an extension of Tcl. The video also will include suggested practices for developing scripts, as well as provide references and techniques for determining the relevant scripting commands and syntax. It will begin with the basic syntax of both Tcl and Glyph and proceeds to dissect a script from Pointwise’s journal to demonstrate the ease of getting started with scripting.

Individuals should go to www.pointwise.com/videos to participate.  Links to download the scripts used in creating the mesh will be in the synopsis of the video on YouTube when the forum begins. Additional material will be posted here.

Those who want to submit questions can do so in three ways:

  • YouTube – Go to www.pointwise.com/videos at the start of the event to be directed to the video. Enter questions in the comments section.
  • Twitter – Use the #LetsTalkMeshing hashtag to participate in a live streaming conversation utilizing Twitter.
  • Email – Questions may be emailed to Email Contact.
