Re: KiCAD to OpenEMS (PCB export)

how does it create meshlines? using line-edge vertices, or taking 1/3 rule into account for every edge? There is switch to select between using exact edges and 1/3 rule: 'boundary_one_third_rule' selects that. You must also set 'min_cell_size' and 'max_cell_size'. This controls minimal/maximal gap ...

Re: KiCAD to OpenEMS (PCB export)

Hi to everybody, didn't check this for some time. pcbmodelgen is very basic, but you may get some work done. As for future integration into KiCAD I have different opinion. I think correct route is to create FreeCAD workbench. When simulating you always need some geometry operations on model and simu...

KiCAD to OpenEMS (PCB export)

Hello I've created utility software that converts KiCAD PCB files to octave/matlab function files, that can be used with openEMS. You can take advantage of drawing capabilities in KiCAD to draw geometry faster and more complex. It also automatically creates mesh lines. Check out 'pcbmodelgen' at htt...
