Infolytica announced that MagNet for SolidWorks, an entirely new software package developed by the company, 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.
The product 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.
According to the company, the advantage is that 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.
