Modifying Imported CAD Geometry with the Deformed Geometry Interface
Application ID: 17017
When you are working with foreign CAD or ECAD data, such as files in the STEP, GDS, or IGES file formats, or any of the other supported formats, you may think that you need to re-import a new CAD file and start your modeling over from scratch if you want to study a change in size or shape. But, in fact, you can modify the geometry that you've imported with some clever usage of the Deformed Geometry interface in COMSOL Multiphysics. This model demonstrates how to do this.
This application was built using the following:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product's capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
