CAD Import Module for Comsol Multiphysics v3.3 (linux)
Getting your CAD geometries ready for FEA modeling is easier than ever with the CAD Import Module.
It facilitates the reading of industry-standard formats such as STEP, IGES, ACIS® (SAT®) or Parasolid .
Extra add-ons support file formats for packages that have their own geometry kernel.
The CAD Import Module goes beyond just the reading of file formats.
The interactive repair feature assures that imported geometries are mathematically correct for FEA modeling.
And, in order to cut down on unnecessary details in your CAD geometries, defeaturing tools that remove fillets,
small faces, sliver faces, as well as spikes or short edges are included.
The CAD Import Module also provides a bidirectional interface to SolidWorks that maintains associativity
with the CAD system.
This means that parameters can be changed in COMSOL models, which result in automatically updating the
CAD geometry in SolidWorks that then updates the COMSOL geometry for a new model.
The CAD Import Module greatly simplifies the transition from geometric
designs created with specialized CAD tools to the simulation environment
of COMSOL Multiphsyics and its modules.
This transition involves the automatic and user-interactive repair
of geometries as well as interactive defeaturing the removal of
small details, such as sliver faces, fillets and spikes.
