Geometry / Create 2D Geometry

Use the software's tools to build 2D geometries.

When creating a model, one of the first steps you must complete is building the geometry. In the COMSOL Multiphysics® software, you can build 2D geometries by using any of the geometry operations, tools, and other functionality available in the software. This includes a plethora of built-in objects for modeling commonly used shapes; parameters for defining the dimensions and position of your objects; as well as Boolean, transformation, and partitioning geometric operations for building complicated geometries.

In this video, we show you how to create a 2D geometry from start to finish, as well as share some recommended tips and best practices to use when building your own geometry. Please feel free to follow along with us on your own computer as we add circle and rectangle objects; use union and difference Boolean operations; and perform copy, array, and mirror transformation operations.
