Convert KiCAD PCB files to models for import in openEMS
You can use this software to convert KiCAD PCB files to Octave function files. Then call from Octave script to import model into openEMS structures. pcbmodelgen also generates Octave function file with model mesh lines. You can use them as is or modify before adding to simulation structure.

Download package and execute from root:
sudo apt-get install libtinyxml2-dev libtclap-dev mkdir build cd build cmake ../ make sudo make install
Check out examples directory. Execute from examples directory:
for basic example of usage. It will show model and after exit from 3D viewer openEMS will run the simulation and present results.
