Needs a thermal modeling software for my design

I have a design of a copper bobbin wounded with a copper wire (wire acts as a solenoid). A small current will pass through the wire. I need to do a thermal analysis (in order to know the temperature values at each position) for this design when the current passes through it.

I tried Icepak in Ansys electronic desktop (student version) for my thermal analysis. But I couldn't get reasonable results. I have a few questions to ask.

  1. Is Icepak designed only for the electronic circuits thermal analysis?
  2. Out of HFSS, Q3D, Icepak, and Maxwell, which one is the best for the thermal analysis in my design?

I really appreciate any of your help.

Thank you,
