New Products in Version 4.2

Version 4.2 includes the following new LiveLink products for CAD:

  • LiveLink for AutoCAD®—connects COMSOL Multiphysics with the AutoCAD software.
  • LiveLink for SpaceClaim®—connects COMSOL Multiphysics with the SpaceClaim software.

New Functionality in Version 4.2

  • The Cap Faces operation feature has been added to help you create fluid or other domains based on solid structures (for example, creating a domain representing the void inside a pipe).
  • The LiveLink for SolidWorks interface now embeds the COMSOL modeling environment into the SolidWorks user interface to allow you to create COMSOL models entirely in the SolidWorks design environment.
  • Virtual geometry has been introduced in COMSOL Multiphysics to help you mesh imported CAD designs where defeaturing is not possible due to a too complex topology, for example.
  • SolidWorks 2011 CAD files are now supported.
