HFWorks 2017 SP0.0 Release

HFWorks 2017 SP0.0 Release Friday, August 4, 2017

HFWorks 2017 is a Gold Certified add-in to SolidWorks.

This is a major new release of the software that incorporates several new features at the meshing and pre-processing, solving and post-processing levels. 

Below are some of the new capabilities that have been added in this release to provide users with more comprehensive simulation options and a more complete set of results.


Solvers

  • High order elements support ( High Accuracy study option)

  • Enhancements to thermal coupling simulation. 
    •Improved thermal solver (previous versions)

  • Enhancements to Parametric Analysis. 
    •Importing parameters from a file.
    •Thermal coupled parametric analysis

  • New and faster Multi-core solvers. 

  • Auto compute dielectric breakdown. 

  • Added Material frequency dependent feature to S-parameters and Antannas analysis

  • Added continue run option for coupled thermal and parametric without losing existing results

Meshing

  • Results probing using an imported mesh file.

Viewing Results

  • Viewing partial results during parametric solving

  • 3D Plot: Animate section vs. position or orientation (move the section plane) 

  • 3D Plot: Animate Iso clip plot vs. iso values 

  • 3D Plot:Transparent model and vector overlay 

  • 3D Plot: Plot mesh,Iso line and vectors using single color

  • 3D Plot: Vector plot on surface, use constant vector size

  • 3D Plot: Export modes, frequencies or parametric plot results to excel sheet (All modes ,frequencies or all scenarios)

  • 3D Plot: Ability to create plot in radial or cartesian direction
  •  
  • 2D Plot: Added curve operations like function and expression plotting
 

Usability

  • Convert Boundary conditions from one type to another.

  • Added new materials option called "Frequency Dependent"

  • Enhancements to HFWorks Options and User interface operations
