Pointwise Inc. and Intelligent Light made a joint announcement on Tuesday that their computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tools
will soon become available for Mac OS X. The companies cited their NASA customers who have moved to the Mac as the impetus for porting the two applications. Pointwise’s Gridgen software enables engineers and scientists to generate meshes used to create 3D models while Intelligent Light’s Fieldview supplies the post-processing tools needed to interpret the results of tests applied to such models.
Neither company offered precise availability dates for the applications, nor had either of them updated their Web sites with system requirements and other information for the Mac OS X versions of the software. Contact Pointwise and Intelligent Light for pricing information.
