QW-Modeller for QuickWave is a workbench for the open source FreeCAD general purpose parametric 3D CAD modeller (http://www.freecadweb.org). FreeCAD features tools are similar to Catia®, SolidWorks®, or Solid Edge®. It is a feature-based parametric modeller with a modular software architecture, which makes it easy to provide additional functionalities without modifying the core system. The CAD capabilities of FreeCAD are based on the OpenCasCade® kernel, a professional-level CAD kernel, featuring advanced 3D geometry manipulation on complex shape types, a wide range of geometric entities, boolean operations and fillets, and built-in support of STEP and IGES formats.

QW-Modeller for QuickWave
QW-Modeller is a free CAD modeller for QuickWave and can be used without any restrictions for preparing complete projects for electromagnetic simulation with QuickWave software.
QW-Modeller for QuickWave allows preparing a complete 3D and 3DP projects.
QuickWave 2016 x64 DEMO is included in the QW-Modeller installation. Its functionality is the same as in the full-power version, but only on predefined examples, which are also included in the QW-Modeller installation.
The Ribbon of QW-Modeller groups all necessary menus and commands that guide the user during project preparation, setting of the simulation parameters, and simulation starting process.
Geometry ribbon allows creating 3D and 2D geometry and also assigning media to the created objects.
Model ribbon enables configuring the circuit parameters and Basic Heating Module, adding ports, wires, defining boundary conditions, mesh settings, and simulation parameters for QuickWave electromagnetic simulator.
Simulation ribbon allows indicating and configuring simulation results to be calculated, choosing QW-Simulator type, exporting and starting simulation.

The current version of QW-Modeller has the following known limitations of usage:
1. Contours are not supported,
2. Only 3D and 3DP circuits can be designed,
3. Movement of the heated object(s) and port parameters switching are not available for Basic Heating Module,
4. QW-Modeller cannot be used in optimisation.
Compatibility with previous versions of QuickWave
The current version of QW-Modeller will work with QuickWave version 2016 and later.
The current version of QW-Modeller can be used with QuickWave version 2014 and 2015 however using the following features is not allowed:
1. Subregions (required for QW-MultiGPU simulator).
2. Nonlinear dispersive materials (not supported in QuickWave 2014 only).
3. Multipoint excitation for dynamic port templates and point ports (not supported in QuickWave 2014 only).
