Ipol allows to distribute points on analytic or discrete curves by specifiying point distances at various locations along the curve. A script language takes the curve parameters and program options. Input and output of the discretized point chains on the curves are in a .pts format as used by the triangular mesher.

Ipol allows to:

  • read any discretized geometry in a .pts format,
  • has a library of analytic shapes such as lines, circles, arcs, polynomials, naca 4 digit airfoils, etc.,
  • scaling, rotation and translation transformations can be applied to each segment of the geometry,
  • point density can be specified arbitrarily at any locations alongthe surface,
  • global and local scaling factors can be applied to adjust the mesh size,
  • the point distribution is smoothend by a Gauss-Seidel relaxation,
  • output is in a .pts format compatible with delaundo,
  • online help is available.
