How to Import an ECAD Geometry for Printed Circuit Board Design
We demonstrate how to import an ECAD geometry into COMSOL Multiphysics® for the design of a printed circuit board. The example features an actual PCB geometry from a company in the industry.
How to Analyze Your SOLIDWORKS® Designs with an App
For many years, it’s been possible to analyze synchronized CAD geometries in COMSOL Multiphysics® via the LiveLink™ interfacing products. But did you know that you can also incorporate this functionality into an easy-to-use simulation app? With an app, you can dynamically modify your geometry in a CAD program such as SOLIDWORKS® and use this information to analyze new product designs. Today, we will demonstrate how to do so, using the new Bike Frame Analyzer app as an example.
Introducing the Design Module
Have you been interested in learning how to create fillets on 3D designs or how to generate shell approximations of imported geometric objects? The latest version of the COMSOL Multiphysics® software includes the new Design Module, which provides these and other tools for easier and more advanced geometric modeling. This optional add-on also includes interoperability tools for the import and export of CAD designs. Let’s take a look in more detail at what you can do with these new features.
Working with Imported CAD Designs
The CAD Import Module, Design Module, and the LiveLink™ products for CAD include tools for repairing and preparing a geometry for simulation. They are powerful additions to the geometric modeling capabilities of the COMSOL Multiphysics® software. Let’s discuss how these tools work and when to apply them.
Geometric Kernels in COMSOL Multiphysics®
The geometric kernel is the software component responsible for handling geometry in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software. You may be wondering what this means or how and why you would use it when modeling. Let’s find out.
Synchronizing Selections Between SolidWorks® and COMSOL Multiphysics®
When working with both SolidWorks® and COMSOL Multiphysics® via LiveLink™ for SolidWorks®, you can choose to synchronize selections. Here’s why you should and how to do it.
Multiphysics Simulations inside the Autodesk® Inventor® User Interface
Starting with the release of COMSOL Multiphysics® 4.3b you can work with multiphysics simulations right from the user interface of the Autodesk® Inventor® CAD system. Called the One Window interface, this functionality is available with LiveLink™ for Inventor®. The result of the work by our external interfaces and integrations development team, the One Window interface, is a completely new environment for simulations that are embedded in the Inventor® user interface. It contains the Model Builder, Settings, and all other views […]
