The Windows version of HeatDesigner can be controlled from an external program, such as Visual Basic, by using "Microsoft COM technology". From software start-up to final completion, the user can use"Microsoft COM technology" in many tasks. This enables improving operating efficiency by automating repeatable processes.
Application: Location of cooling fan
It is usually necessary to repeat the calculations to identify the best location for the fan. The temperatures of the heated parts are influenced by where the fan is located. Such repetitive procedures can be dramatically reduced by using the macro function in HeatDesigner.
By specifying the coordinates of the fan and clicking the execute button, the pre-set macro will automatically be executed. In this example, geometry modification, mesh generation, condition setting, calculation, and creation of a report after the calculation of multiple cases are automatically executed.
