ElectroMagnetic Workbench

Hi All, I'm happy to announce that the first version of the ElectroMagnetic Workbench for the FastFieldSolvers free tools is available! Screenshot EM window.png At present, the Workbench fully supports the FastHenry magnetoquasistatic impedance solver (i.e. inductance and resistance calculation of 3...

Re: Electromagnetic Workbench - again..

Hi All, new commit for the EM Workbench, and new videos: 1) Using the new path object 2) Using the new path object, part 2: changing segment cross-section orientation 3) Conductive plane part 3 - add and remove nodes/holes I will soon start writing the relevant documentation in the Wiki pages for th...

Re: Electromagnetic Workbench - again..

Hi Everybody, for those interested, we published a new version of the EM Workbench , and there are two new tutorial videos explaining how to use the latest enhancements, centered around: 1) define a conductive plane . 2) parametrize the position of the nodes Enjoy, and any feedback is welcome as usu...

Re: Electromagnetic Workbench - again..

I see your point; but the Mesh workbench already offered Netgen as an option as mesher (as well as Mephisto) but the exposed options are limited, and also reflecting the fact that the mesh workbench is designed with triangular meshes in mind. So I understand you enlarged the access to more complex m...

Re: Electromagnetic Workbench - again..

Hi Bernd - surely this is good!

But what's different from using the Mesh workbench for meshing a shell? (I usually do that)

Re: Electromagnetic Workbench - again..

Hi Bernd, I'm not sure we are talking about the same thing here - I have not deeply tested the FEM workbench in itself, but at least from the tutorials and demos I see that the basic FEM_MeshNetgenFromShape creates a volume mesh, as I expect. There could be other simulations where you just use surfa...

Re: Electromagnetic Workbench - again..

We plan to be using the materials sooner or later, but for the time being it is an overshoot probably. FasterCap format is the same of FastCap, but this is pretty specific to those solvers I'm afraid. Also, it is based on pure surface panels geometrical descriptions (akin to what the Mesh workbench ...

Re: Electromagnetic Workbench - again..

I'm happy to announce that a beta version of the FreeCAD E.M. workbench for FastHenry is available for testing. In the end, we decided for a stand-alone workbench, to be added in the FreeCAD addons page . In this way, it can be readily used on the 0.17 stable version for any user. Eventually, if pos...

Re: Electromagnetic Workbench - again..

@Kunda1: there is not a ready-to-use workbench yet, but some macro code. The intention of my message was to announce the start of the activity, not the upload of a complete workbench, so that the community can also provide opinions and comments, for example if merging the macros into the FEM workben...

Re: Electromagnetic Workbench - again..

Hi Bernd, regarding your questions: What kind of elements do you use? If SMESH does support this element type most FEM mesh related methods will work The answer changes according to the solver. We support FastHenry, FastCap, FasterCap, FastImp, VoxHenry. In the specific case, we are working with fir...
