Infolytica Corp. has announced that MagNet for SolidWorks, a new software package, will be officially launched in 2014. SolidWorks users who need to design and analyze electromagnetic or electromechanical devices can use this new tool directly in their preferred CAD environment.
MagNet for SolidWorks is a new product from Infolytica, which 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 any geometric translation or model import. Using just one environment for modeling and design is both convenient and more efficient for the user.
More details about the first version of MagNet for SolidWorks will be available in the first quarter of 2014. Until then, a web page with some images and other highlights of this new product has been posted on the company’s website at www.infolytica.com/mfs/.
Full pricing and an official release date will be announced in spring 2014.
