I am trying to use Mechanical to make a thermal simulation of a electronic board (I was using it to create 3d models of the individual components and boards). I tried some materials (plastic, metal) to simulate the PCB, with very different results. How to simulate the material of a PCB?. Is the mechanical module capable to do a thermal simulation of a electronics board into a box? Does it simulate radiation and convection heat transfer?
I've just ehad a similar issue with a 10 layer PCB and no obvious way of getting the copper layers imported. Mentor software outputs CCE or ODB++ but neither seem to be able to be imported into Creo. Has anyone found a simple way of achieving a good multi layer PCB thermal simulation in Creo?
