Modifying Imported CAD Geometry with the Deformed Geometry Interface

Application ID: 17017

When you are working with foreign CAD or ECAD data, such as files in the STEP, GDS, or IGES file formats, or any of the other supported formats, you may think that you need to re-import a new CAD file and start your modeling over from scratch if you want to study a change in size or shape. But, in fact, you can modify the geometry that you've imported with some clever usage of the Deformed Geometry interface in COMSOL Multiphysics. This model demonstrates how to do this.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
