Getting Started

To try the EIDORS software, follow these steps:
  1. Download EIDORS :
    Release (1 June 2018): EIDORS 3.9.1, or EIDORS 3.9.1 with Netgen 5.3 (for windows 64 bit). Or Developer Version
    Optional ready-made FEM models: model_library (7 Jul 2012)
  2. Unzip the software in a directory such as /path/to/eidors(UNIX) or C:\path\to\eidors(Windows)
    (installation instructions for model_library are included in a README file)
  3. Download and install Netgen (Unless version with netgen installed. EIDORS will ask for the path to netgen when required)
  4. Start Matlab
  5. In the Matlab command window type: >>run /path/to/eidors/startup.m
    (windows >>run C:/path/to/eidors/startup.m)
  6. Try the Tutorials, or execute one of the sample programs in the /path/to/eidors/examples directory (such as compare_2d_algs(1))
