BuildCavity (version 1.4.3)
Long time ago I developed a code that helps in building and tuning multicell elliptical cavities with Superfish. It's based on old VB6 code, but is still in maintenance. The current version is BuildCavity 1.4.3, working with Superfish 7. It can work on later windows systems, such as Win 7 and 8. Download the installation files. During installation, don't overwrite newer system files and simply ignore the warning on the failure to register the DB components. The program gets installed anyhow and the DB access components are in modern windows systems (from XP on) by default.
Changes of the new version can be found here.
You'll also need the most recent version of the cavity DB from here.
If you want to analyze only internal half cell geometries with the new and easier .NET version (which does not have multicell capabilities, but one day I may have time for that ...), try it.
- new Superfish file formats and options for stepsizes, cell-to-cell coupling evaluation, wsfplot use...
- it no longer uses MS Access files for the DB, but XML files
- Only internal cells and no ANSYS converter, sorry!
- Nerd details: complete rewrite in C#, based on event-rich classes and event-driven object-oriented programming.
