Discover how engineers at Bombardier developed the Meshing & Adaptive Re-meshing Server (MARS) with Cadence Pointwise’s Glyph scripting to create over 250,000 high-quality CFD meshes since 2017. MARS automates the meshing process, reduces meshing time, and ensures consistent user-agnostic meshes across geometry variations. In this presentation, learn how to: • Create high-quality meshes to resolve flows with reasonable cost • Use Glyph scripting to automate meshing for consistency, quality, and fast turn-around times • Encapsulate company best practices with templates for any geometry
