Applied CCM is the distributor of Pointwise products in the Oceanica region and Canada. Pointwise is solving one of the top problems facing engineering analysts today: grid generation for computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and other numerical simulations. The company has been a premier supplier of grid generation software and services to the engineering analysis community since 1994.  With its decades of expertise in development, support, and application of robust software for real-world meshing challenges, Pointwise has helped industry, government, and academic clients worldwide bridge the “design – analysis gap.”

Generating meshes for CFD is neither easy nor fun. But mesh generation is where you have the most direct influence on how fast, how converged and how accurate your solutions are. Because of that, you need a mesher that’s flexible, robust and reliable. That’s Pointwise.


Mesh quality is the key to converged and accurate CFD solutions especially for viscous flows over complex geometry. With Pointwise, you get all the tools you need to achieve the desired results – high levels of automation plus intimate levels of control. Pointwise’s structured quad/hex grid techniques are the best available and the T-Rex technique for hybrid prism/tet meshes automates the rapid meshing of complex shapes. Pointwise even lets you move grid points one at a time if that’s what you need.


Pointwise is the workhorse that moves you confidently from dealing with less-than-perfect CAD to formatting the grid for your flow solvers. It can import CAD data from native and standard formats, work with both analytic (i.e. NURBS) and faceted (e.g. STL) geometry representations, and ensure that your geometry is watertight and ready to mesh with solid modeling and quilting.

Applied CCM has expertise developing Glpyh scripts from simple utilities to complete meshing automation.

Once the mesh is complete, it and its boundary conditions can be exported to Caelus, OpenFOAM and a wide variety of other open-source, commercial, and standard CFD formats. And if Pointwise doesn’t have built-in support for your CFD solver, you can add your own exporter with Pointwise’s plugin capability. Even the meshing process itself can be customized with templates and macros you write in our TclTk-based Glyph scripting language.


Our commitment to your success only begins with the software. Whether you encounter a technical issue or just need advice to get the most from Pointwise, we are ready to help. Support and training are included with every license. We generate more than just grids – we have expertise running open-source and commercial CFD solvers and can provide meshing advice for your particular solver and application.
