Infolytica has announced the release of its latest MagNet for SOLIDWORKS update, the company’s electromagnetic field simulation add-in to the 3D CAD package. This update includes improvements made to the interface, post-processing and speed of the software.

MagNet for SOLIDWORKS is an embedded 3D electromagnetic field solver developed by Infolytica Corporation that is based on its standalone MagNet 2D/3D software.

The simulation and analysis of any electromagnetic device can be performed completely within the SOLIDWORKS environment using this embedded version, which the company says making it simpler than ever to setup such complex design problems. This includes a wide range of applications such as transformers, sensors, MRI, actuators, solenoids and more.

In this release, changes have been made to the user interface for both material modelling and post-processing. It is easier to set the direction of magnetisation and material type for the electromagnetic analysis. In addition, users can set their desired point of origin in the model for reference when viewing charts and quantities available after a simulation is complete in order to view results in a relatable manner for their application.

A new level of efficiency: speed ups have been made to the model setup, visualisations, transparency modelling and loading of large results data. This update also includes the continuous work with each release to make the accurate static, AC and transient 3D electromagnetic field simulations within SOLIDWORKS more efficient. All of these changes result in an even faster and reliable add-in.

Infolytica have provided state-of-the-art Electromagnetic simulation software for magnetic, electric, and thermal analyses since 1978. Engineers from a wide range of industries use Infolytica software to design and analyse applications including electromechanical devices, non-destructive testing, induction heating, and industrial transformers. Full feature scripting and parameterisation (including Optimisation) make Infolytica products the flexible solution for electromagnetic simulation.

MagNet for SOLIDWORKS is an embedded 3D electromagnetic field solver from Infolytica. Instead of using a live-link, or connecting two standalone tools, the simulation of any electromagnetic device can now be performed seamlessly within the integrated SOLIDWORKS environment using this add-in. It is the ideal choice for designers who regularly use SOLIDWORKS, and have a need for electromagnetic analysis.

MagNet is a 2D/3D analysis package, with static and dynamic field modelling of magnetic fields, plus the effects of general motion. ElecNet is the equivalent package for 2D/3D electric field analysis. Automated coupling to thermal analysis allows the effects of temperature to be included. As well as a built-in circuit simulator, MagNet also co-simulates with 3rd party software including Simulink and PSIM.

MotorSolve is a specialised Design Tool for SRM, brushed and brushless DC, and Induction machines, aimed at designers who require answers quickly and accurately. There is a sizing feature (based on classical methods) to prepare an initial design, and adjustments later made using template data entry with accurate FEM then utilised. The integrated thermal modelling allows temperature effects and cooling strategies to be tested for BLDC and IM machines, all in a single package.
