All the materials are selected in the material database.

Conductor materials are selected in the “Electrical Conductor” type material family.

Insulator materials are selected in the “Electrical Insulator” type material family.

Thicknesses of insulations are defined inside the winding settings panel – COIL tab.

Insulation materials are considered only if a corresponding thickness is defined.
