Infolytica Corp says that MagNet for SolidWorks, a new software package developed by the company, will be officially launched in 2014. SolidWorks users who must design and analyze electromagnetic or electromechanical devices can use this new tool directly in their preferred CAD environment.
MagNet for SolidWorks embeds an electromagnetic field simulator as an add-in to Solidworks 2013 or later. It uses the same 3D EM finite-element technology that is in the company’s MagNet 2D/3D simulation software.
The advantage is a device can be simulated and analyzed with Infolytica’s electromagnetic solver technology directly in Solidworks’ native solid modeling system without a geometric translation or model import. Using just one environment for modeling and design is both convenient and more efficient for the user.
The first version of MagNet for SolidWorks will be available Q1 2014. Until then, a web page with product highlights is posted on the company’s website.
