Updated MagNet for SOLIDWORKS™ – electromagnetic field add-in

Infolytica Corporation announces today the release of a new version of MagNet for SOLIDWORKS, the company’s electromagnetic field simulation add-in to the 3D CAD package. This update includes a brand new circuit editor, new libraries of steel and magnetic materials, support for SOLIDWORKS 2016 and other general improvements.

MagNet for SOLIDWORKS is an embedded 3D electromagnetic field solver developed by Infolytica Corporation. The simulation and analysis of any electromagnetic device can be performed completely within the SOLIDWORKS 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 for SOLIDWORKS allows the user to add components and wire them together as desired to construct the circuit to drive their transformer, actuator or any other electromagnetic device. A wide variety of components are supported: voltage and current sources can be used to 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:

Other improvements have been made to the mesh controls, material assignment and field visualizations. This new release also supports both Windows® 10 and SOLIDWORKS 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.”

Pricing and Availability
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.
