CAD Import Module and LiveLink Products for CAD

New LiveLink for Solid Edge

The new LiveLink™ for Solid Edge® provides a bidirectional interface for transferring CAD data to a from the Solid Edge CAD software.

New Functionality in the CAD Import Module

  • During import of external CAD data you can select the Remove redundant edges and vertices check box to remove such edges and vertices when importing the geometry. By default this option is not selected, so COMSOL imports the geometry keeping all edges and vertices.
  • The file-based CAD import (in the CAD Import Module and all MCAD LiveLink products) now supports the following updated file formats:
  • Catia V5 R22
  • Parasolid V25

New Functionality in LiveLink for AutoCAD®

  • Added support for AutoCAD 2013.

New Functionality in LiveLink for Inventor®

  • Associativity is now maintained without writing information to the CAD file.

New Functionality in LiveLink for Pro/ENGINEER®

  • Parameters are transferred together with their units to COMSOL.
  • User-defined parameters are now correctly transferred to COMSOL.

New Functionality in LiveLink for Creo Parametric

  • Support for Creo Parametric 2.0.
  • Parameters are transferred together with their units to COMSOL.
  • User-defined parameters are now correctly transferred to COMSOL.
