I am trying to do an electrostatic analysis using Maxwell 3D on a geometry that I imported from SIwave. The file from SIwave is imported OBD++ files from Altium.
1) When I select any of the metal surfaces, it tells me that I cannot apply a voltage to a nonplanar surface. I'm not sure how to get around this.
1.1) Do I have to select all of the metal pads/planes at a given potential, or will I get the same results just selecting one of the pads for that NET?
2) When I select the dielectric from the 3D Model Editor window, the dielectric only appears along the x-axis with the correct height on the z-axis. There doesn't appear to be a y-dimension to it.
I'm new to all of this so any help is appreciated. A screenshot showing the dielectric issue is attached.
