Here is a Steady State Thermal analysis.
A single coil of the thermal mat is created in SpaceClaim in a multibody part.
The hexagonal coil is 1 mm thick and is embedded in a solid that is 4 mm thick.
A mesh that has less than 32K nodes+elements is created to stay within the Student license limits.
The coil has a Temperature BC of 30 degrees C
The front faces of the mat and coil have a convective BC. I just made up a Film Coefficient, you may want experimental data to support this.
The bottom and side faces of the unit square of the mat have a perfectly insulated BC. The temperature is plotted below.
You can pattern the coil to create a model closer to your example with multiple coil segments.
Having multiple coils or coil segments doesn't change anything except the mesh size.
