Enhancement: Import Gerberdata to simulate a PCB with high current

Hello,

it would be helpfull, if CFD could import and handle real Gerber-Data from ECAD-Designs to simulate the power dissipation of a PCB.

Many electronic drives (E-Bike, E-Car, ...) need a lot of current, which results in heating of a pcb due tue the copper resistance.

For a correct simulation of the heating and cooling of such a pcb it is necessary to import real Gerber-Data.

Thanks Alois. Appreciate the feedback. If there is a sample file you can share as an example of the data you want to work with, can you send it to Simulation.CFD.Enhancements@autodesk.com?

Hello Jon,

 

is a sample file (Extended Gerber Data) necessary ?

Will Autodesk this feature implement in the next time ?
