Current density in inductor

      Is there a way to show the current density (distribution of current in the conductor) in a cutaway view of an inductor? The inductor is single-layer air-core operating at 13.56 MHz. I would like to have a cutaway that shows the majority of the current is in the skin depth along the edge of the conductor. I created a model in HFSS that accurately tells me the inductor's impedance using a lumped port, but I do not see a way to show a cutaway of current density. Thank you for any help with this.

      HI Brandon i havent tried Ansys MAxwell to find the current density at higher frequencies but tried Infolytica Magnet ( another FEA software) and it failed to show the skin depth. May be the same thing with Ansys MAxwell to give you the skin depth and then you can calculate the current density.
