Sure.

I would be happy to contribute. This as first step. Second I ask you for an edit account for the user wiki. It would be good to write down my experiences in the wiki under Elmer electrostatic

But how can I edit the files? I can edit them locally and send it all to you. There are not so many files...

Always glad to see more helping hands.

edit them and post them as zip here on the forum is fine, but you could become a official FreeCAD developer if you use github for this. Since the changes are quite small you could do anything in github web system directly on the internet

- Use your github account if you have one (or make one if you do not have one)
- all the following could be done directly on github in the internet
- forge FreeCAD
- create a new branch
- edit the files, commit the changes
- make a PullRequest to this branch: https://github.com/berndhahnebach/FreeC ... ree/femdev

A small tutorial how to perform a electrostatic analysis with elmer and FreeCAD FEM on a small example would be great!

I do not know anything about electrostatic analysis. Is it possible to take an example which could be calculated by pen, paper and a calculator to compare the results. Including this would be cool. Like FEM_CalculiX_Cantilever_3D (actually the calculation of the 88.4 mm by pen and paper is missing, but it is just one formula)

Ouch, 15 years after leaving university...
Sure with pencil and paper? :D

But yes, point load against grounded plate should be possible.

You guys have my attention now :geek:
How about a simple coaxial transmission line?
