How we can create Polygon Using External File in COMSOL Multiphysics

To create a polygon in COMSOL Multiphysics there is a tool that we should type and set the point’s coordinate. In this tip we will use an external file to import point’s data and Heating Circuit CMS is used to illustrate it. The steps in all geometry type is the same, whether in 2D geometry or 3D or even a work plane.

Work Plane 1 (wp1)>Polygon 1 (pol1)

  1. In the Work Plane toolbar, click Polygon.
  2. In the Settings window for Polygon, locate the Coordinates section.
  3. From the Data source list, choose File.
  4. Click Browse.
  5. Browse to the model’s Application Libraries folder and double-click the file heating_circuit_polygon.txt.
  6. Click Build Selected.

In this example we created the path using the external point data except the two squares.
