Importing and Meshing a PCB Geometry from an ODB++ Archive
Application ID: 47681
This tutorial model shows how to import data from an ODB++® archive to generate a geometry of a printed circuit board (PCB). Follow the instructions to learn how to remove small details from the geometry, create a mesh, and use automatically generated selections to define physics and mesh settings.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
