The Revolution in Simulation Continues to Gain Momentum as Pointwise, Inc. Joins the Growing List of Sponsors

JUNE 5, 2019; USA – The industry collaboration and technology alliance Revolution In Simulation (“Rev-Sim” at, created to accelerate innovation through the democratization of engineering simulation, announces Pointwise, Inc. ( as a new sponsor for 2019.

“How do you democratize engineering simulation and make it safe and reliable for non-experts? A good start would be to make mesh generation invisible”, said John Chawner, president of Pointwise, Inc. “That’s why Pointwise is sponsoring Revolution in Simulation, to be part of a diverse team dedicated to making simulation more broadly accessible. We view democratization as more than a zero-sum game; we see it as elevating simulation for practitioners across the entire spectrum of expertise.”

Pointwise adds its name to a growing list of sponsors including: ANSYS, Aras, ASSESS, Beyond CAE, EASA, ESRD, ESTECO, Front End Analytics, Kinetic Vision, Modelon, NAFEMS, Ohio Supercomputer Center, PASS, PLM Alliances, UberCloud and VCollab. These innovative organizations are providing the expert leadership that supports the growing industry-wide movement to make engineering simulation more accessible, efficient, and reliable not just for CAE experts but also for everyone in the enterprise – what is commonly referred to as the “Democratization of Simulation” or DoS.

RevSim.Org co-founder, Rich McFall said, “Rev-Sim sponsors are critical in driving the Democratization of Simulation movement. We are excited to have Pointwise join other simulation market leaders who are demonstrating their revolutionary leadership by sharing their simulation expertise and resources in a collaborative alliance that benefits all industrial users of engineering simulation technologies.”
