Infolytica Corp. has released a new version of MagNet for SOLIDWORKS, the company’s electromagnetic field simulation add-in to the 3D CAD package. This update includes a new circuit editor, new libraries of steel and magnetic materials, support for the 2016 version of the CAD program, and other general improvements.
The simulation and analysis of any electromagnetic device can be performed completely within the CAD program environment using this add-in. Infolytica Corporation is a certified solution partner of DSS SOLIDWORKS.
Efficient use of most electromagnetic devices require that they be influenced with a desired excitation. Most often the generation of this excitation requires the use of a circuit to control the specific characteristics, timing and overall profile.
The new release of MagNet lets the user add components and wire them together as needed to construct the circuit to drive their transformer, actuator, or other electromagnetic device. The supported components include voltage and current sources which provide energy to the circuit; resistors, capacitors, inductors, switches and diodes can be used to control the profile and timing. Voltage and current probes can be used to review the response of the circuit.
This new release also features several additions to the already extensive library of steel and magnetic materials:
- Vacoflux 17 and Vacoflux 17 0.35 steels from Vacuumschmelze GmbH & Co KG
- Ferrite Materials, NdFeB Materials and SmCo Materials from Arnold Magnetic Technologies
- Non-Oriented Steel Materials from POSCO
Other improvements have been made to the mesh controls, material assignment and field visualizations. This new release also supports both Windows 10 and SOLIDWORK 2016.
Special pricing is in effect between now and SOLIDWORKS WORLD 2016, where Infolytica Corporation will be exhibiting. “We welcome all attendees to visit our booth in Dallas, Texas.” said Chad Ghalamzan, Marketing Manager. “However anyone who wants to see firsthand before next year what our software can do, we’re happy to schedule a private web demonstration or provide a no-charge evaluation license.”
MagNet for SOLIDWORKS is now available for SOLIDWORKS 2013 SP4 or later. For information about the full list of improvements, request a demo, quote or full feature evaluation, please contact an Infolytica Corporation representative nearest you.
