Development and recent improvements to JMAG-Designer [July, 2012]

This article describes some of the motivations behind the development of JMAG-Designer and some of the new features in JMAG-Designer 11.1. The new functions support the manual mesh operations that were available in JMAG-Studio so that JMAG-Designer now provides both the convenience of 3D modeling with automatic meshing and the detailed control that manual mesh creation provides. We also continue to add new capabilities and some of the functions that can be expected in future releases are briefly outlined.


The release of JMAG-Designer Ver.11 [Winter, 2011]

The newest version of JMAG-Designer was released January 2012. Ver. 11 improves many existing features while adding a variety of new functions. The overall goal of these features is to reduce analysis time while increasing analysis capabilities.
Improvements in the solver can substantially reduce the calculation time, but this is only a part of the total time necessary to run an analysis. The total analysis time must consider the time spent generating the model and applying the conditions. That is why Ver. 11 improves many functions that help reduce the difficulty in setting up a model.
At JSOL, we are constantly working to improve all aspects of JMAG, and your feedback is appreciated.
Your comments and requests will continue to shape JMAG's functionality and we look forward to hearing your opinion of the features described in the following paper.
