  • New version QuickField 6.4 is a new major step in QuickField project development with accent on 3D simulation improvements.

    Geometry models, as in the previous QuickField versions, may be created in CAD system and then imported as a STEP file, or extruded from flat geometries in QuickField Model Editor.
    But before version 6.4 CAD-based models were limited to single body topologies. Now it is possible to simulate any complicated assemblies with unlimited number of bodies*.

    New algorithms of FEA mesh generation work blazingly fast, and automatic or manually adjusted 3D meshes are constructed within seconds. New version also features brand new, fast and accurate 3D FEA solver. With these improvements 3D part of QuickField software becomes easy, efficient and accurate tool – matching our proven 2D analysis modules.

    3D examples showcasing the application of new 3D analysis capabilities to various problems are shown below.

    Insulated pipe outlet

    Fault current limiter

    Wenner method

    Arcing horns

    Spark plug electric field

    Suspension insulator

    High-voltage SF6 gas insulated busbars

    Prepulse switch

    * New features required us to change the format of 3D model files, so 3D geometries imported in previous versions of QuickField cannot be open in version 6.4. Extruded models may be open but the extrusion should be performed in a new version. 2D model formats are not affected.
