FEATool Multiphysics is now available as a VirtualBox Virtual Machine (VM) disk image to quickly get up and running and for easy installation on systems that do not natively support or has Octave or Matlab installed. The image can for instance be used on macOS systems for which the Octave GUI is unavailable. To use the image, first download and install VirtualBox, set up a Linux (Ubuntu) VM system with for example 1 GB of RAM memory, lastly download and use the VDI image file from the link below. Starting the VM should quickly load Ubuntu 16.04 Linux with the low resource IceWM window manager. To launch Octave and start the FEATool GUI simply double click on the FEATool Multiphysics icon. Users who want to customize the image should note that the used username and password both are featool.
