SSOP electronic component

This is a model of a SSOP component with a non-uniform heat load on the silicon die.  A 2D DXF file was imported, automeshed then extruded into the 3D geometry.  Even though the die is attached to a copper pad which is exposed on the underside of the package, this simulation fixes the lead tips are 0C.
