Hello,

Is it possible to import geometries from other CAD tools such as solid works to work in fast henry? I tried but it didn't work.

thanks,
Ram

Dear Ram,

you can not import them directly. FastHenry uses its own input file format, based on parallelepipeds (rectangular 3D segments), that are not in general conforming to 3D geometries. You need to define your structure in a meaningful way, but also note that FastHenry is not based on FEM methods, so you don't need to discretize the air / space volumes, only the conductors.

We are working on a workbench in FreeCAD as open source sponsored project. If you are interested to join the sponsorship, we can discuss your requirements, as FreeCAD can import many 3D file formats, and there you would be able to define geometries to be exported to FastHenry.

Best Regards,
Enrico

Hi Enrico,

Thank you for your reply. Sorry, i didn't see it because i didn't receive any notification by email.
I'm not sure what you mean by "interested to join sponsorship"? Does it mean any financial sponsorship? I'm interested in the FREECAD use for exporting geometries to the fastfield sovers.

thanks,
Ram

Yes, financial sponsorship. If you are interested, please contact me via email (see the 'contacts' page, and we can discuss details.

Best Regards,
Enrico
