This Is How I Glyph – Splitting Multiple Connectors

  Drilling down the grid hierarchy and working directly with connectors is a surefire way to achieve the control you desire while meshing with Pointwise. A connector’s grid point distribution and dimension propagate through a multiblock structured grid system and … Continue reading

This Is How I Glyph – Dimension Connectors From Spacings

When using 2-D T-Rex in Pointwise to resolve highly curved surfaces with anisotropic triangles—the leading edge of a wing section for example—it’s usually recommended to keep the aspect ratio of these anisotropic triangles within some limit.  We recommend an aspect … Continue reading

This Is How I Glyph – Uniform Unstructured Domain Refinement

Previously I wrote about a Glyph script that performs automatic grid refinement. That script starts with refining connectors, then domains, and finally blocks. For unstructured grids, domains are initialized using their bounding edges. The simple action of refining a connector, … Continue reading

This Is How I Glyph – Squeeze Con

Connector creation and manipulation is one of the most important, but tedious, tasks when creating multiblock structured topologies. You may find yourself repeatedly copying and pasting the same connector to construct a wireframe that defines the blocking strategy in a … Continue reading
