Pointwise’s Project Geode kernel is being used for node insertion in research code for degree elevation and curving of high-order meshes, such as this quadratic mesh

Pointwise’s Project Geode has been announced for open Beta testing, as the new solid modelling kernel for distributed computing of engineering simulation and analysis.

The Beta version of the Project Geode kernel is tuned to the needs of engineering simulation, making it fast and light enough for a distributed computing environment, while its heritage is the full kernel that forms the basis of Pointwise’s geometry-related capabilities.

A fourth generation solid modeling and geometry kernel written in C++, it is available across Windows, Linux and Mac in both 32-bit and 64-bit builds.

Vero Software has launched a new product with which it aims to ‘fill the gap between CAD and CAM’, a direct modelling tool focusing on the specific needs of machinist programmers.

As a stand-alone, optional application for its CAM portfolio, the newly-available Designer enables users to create new designs or modify existing geometry from third-party CAD systems.

Vero says that Designer, which accepts any CAD file from any source, represents a CAD framework that will become ‘the core modelling engine for all CAM applications’, without a dependency on having a series of parameters to drive it, or a feature tree.
