New Meshing Forums at CFD Online
CFD Online has added several new forums related to mesh generation. In addition to a general Mesh Generation & Preprocessing Forum there are forums related to specific meshing software.
We at Pointwise will do our best to contribute to the forums. Of course, our technical support engineers will continue to work with customer issues reported to firstname.lastname@example.org or phoned in to 800-4PT-WISE.
