Defining Symmetry

Apply symmetry to save computational resources.

The model has magnetic symmetry about the XZ plane and geometric symmetry about the XY plane. This step is optional and you are encouraged to remove symmetry later and to compare the difference in computational resources.
  1. On the Solve/Run tab, in the Solution settings group, click the  Symmetry icon.
  2. Specify the following symmetry.
    • Y=0: Magnetic symmetry
    • Z=0: Geometric symmetry

  3. Click OK to close the dialog.

Optional: Hide the symmetry.

  1. On the 3D View context tab, on the Display options tab, in the Solver display group, click the  Symmetry icon.
