After a couple of months without a new post I've started writing about simulating charge distributions, rather than just boundary value problems. I'll explain how can calculate the electrostatic fields of arbitrarily shaped charge densities, which are specified with mesh subdomains. These will have hard edges for now but I want to look into having more general charge distributions.

I've also run 3D simulations for calculating capacitances between arbitrarily shaped conductors and 2D linear dielectrics. I need to do some more testing & comparison with other FEA tools/ analytical methods before I publish any posts. Seems to be going well though!
