So, this is not about FEM but I am posting it here since it is closely related and can be complementary with it and since I believe that those users that have interest in FEM/CFD will also be most competent using it and have interest in it.

First, here are some videos to get a more higher level understanding of its possibilities and get some inspiration from an commercial tool implementation of it with an parametric 3d model

And next to get a bit deeper in to using Modelica directly

I believe it would be very useful to explore the possibilities to connect it with FreeCAD. I know there were in the past already some suggestions to use it for animations, but I hope that we can see from the above examples that it can be used for much much more and that its core powers are in system dynamics, solving differential, algebraic and discrete equations, lumped and logical models, systems engineering,...

While most of the usage examples that can be found around the internet are more from mechanical systems, and I am sure that there are many FreeCAD users that have a lot of interest in that, personally I am interested more in how it could be used in building construction (eg. structural calculations, thermal and energy calculations, noise transmissions, MEP and electrical systems,...)
