Pyramid with rounded corners
Posted Nov 27, 2012, 9:55 AM EST Geometry Version 4.3 3 Replies
I am very new to COMSOL and for a research project I am now trying to model plasmonic effects on the tip of small pyramids.
The problem I have encountered is that I don't want any divergence of the effects in my model so I would like to simulate it with rounded corners of a radius I define in the parameters.
I know it is not easy to approach this as COMSOL unfortunately offers no fillet tool in 3D. Therefore I tried to do it the hard way by using spheres and cylinders but that takes for ever and needs a lot of trigonometry calculations. For that reason I wanted to ask if anyone of you has ever done that before and if you had any tipps to do it differently or if not provide a recipe to do it step by step?
That would safe me a lot of work.
Thanks for your comments,
