There are some possibilities how to get the MAGNETICS solver. Depending on if you are a industrial or university user or if you want to make a trial. Please choose from the following.

Industry Licensing

The product MAGNETICS for NX/Simcenter is distributed by Dr. Binde Ingenieure, Design & Engineering GmbH and interested parties can license the program directly from the company. 


Please contact us for licensing.


Maybe you want to discuss about your special simulation problem and you want to see if and how this can be solved with MAGNETICS. Feel free and contact us. In many cases we prepare such special examples for our customers. We can use this in an individual training for you.  


In addition, the program can be licensed through distributors of Dr. Binde Ingenieure:


The following modules contribute to the MAGNETICS system. Each of these can be licensed separately:

  • Magnetics for NX: The solver environment for Siemens Simcenter or NX. It allows setting up the model with CAD preparation, meshing, material properties, physical properties, solution parameters, boundary conditions, loads and constraints. The module allows defining and writing the input file for the different solutions of the solver. Also the capability to postprocess results is included here. Plots, animations, tabular graphs all in Simcenter or NX format can be processed.
  • Magnetics Base Solvers: This module contains the executable program that can read solver input files and perform the finite element solution. The possible solution types are Magnetostatics (2D/3D), Magnetodynamic Transient (2D/3D), Magnetodynamic Frequency (2D/3D), DC Conduction Steady Steate (2D/3D), Electrostatic (2D/3D), Electrodynamic Transient (2D/3D) and Electrodynamic Frequency (2D/3D).
  • Magnetics HF Solvers: This module contains the executable program to perform solutions for high frequency (full wave) problems. Such are Full Wave Transient (2D/3D), Full Wave Frequency (2D/3D), Eigenmodes (2D/3D) and Waveguides.
  • Magnetics Charged Particles: The module contains the solvers for charged particle dynamics. These can be added to the following solutions: Magnetostatic (3D), Magnetodynamic Transient (3D), DC Conduction Steady Steate (3D), Electrostatic (3D), Electrodynamic (3D) and Full Wave Transient (3D).
  • Magnetics Master Libs: This module contains libraries with physical formulations used by the solver. The libraries are partly visible and partly hidden. Although, these libraries are necessary in most cases, it is possible to use MAGNETICS without them, if the advanced user writes and uses his own formulations.

Educational Usage

Besides being used in industries, the MAGNETICS solver can also be used effectively in teaching and research at universities. We offer many attractive capabilities for use as a teaching and research tool.


Please contact us.


For details of features, see below.

  • Unlimited usage of MAGNETICS throughout the university with no restriction on the number of concurrent users, problem sizes and analysis capabilities.
  • The MAGNETICS solver can be used to analyze electromagnetic, coupled thermal, coupled elasticity (mechanical) and motion problems.
  • The program runs fully integrated in NX / Simcenter and Teamcenter. For these products Siemens provides a university program also. See here for further information.
  • The theory and formulations used in MAGNETICS follow closely the material in the Hanser book Simulations with NX / Simcenter 3D (english) Simulationen mit NX / Simcenter 3D (german).
  • Many tutorials and theory is shipped with the installation package of the software.
  • A 1500 nodes version of the program is provided that can be freely distributed to students to be used on their own personal computers. No password is required to run this special version.

1500 Nodes Version

A limited version of the program is available to try the powerful analysis capabilities of MAGNETICS for NX / Simcenter. This is a 64-bit version that installs and runs only on 64-bit Windows®. It allows to use not more that 1500 nodes. Many small examples and tutorials can be solved with this.


Please contact us to download the 1500 nodes version.


To ensure that the latest version of the program is used, the license expires in a year or earlier, at which time the program can no longer be used. The license can be renewed at no charge by requesting to download the current version. The 1500 nodes version can be installed and used on as many PCs as you like. No support is provided with this version.
