I'm having a hard time finding good multi-dimensional heat transfer software. Therm seems standard for 2d, but has some limitations (I think) in the materials available. Are there any others out there a little more flexible or any similar that can do 3d?

I realize this could be construed as opinionated, but I'm more interested in what's available than opinions about them.

Thanks, Ben

You can also use a multiphysics fem software like Comsol or Elmer fem (open source)
