We interface the head modelling, coil models, Graphical User Interface (GUI), and post-processing capabilities of the SimNIBS package with the boundary element fast multipole method (BEM-FMM), implemented in a MATLAB-based module. The resulting pipeline combines the best of both worlds: the individualized head modelling and ease-of-use of SimNIBS with the numerical accuracy of BEM-FMM. The corresponding TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) modeling package is developed and made available online. It imports a SimNIBS surface segmentation and a coil field, and then exports electric-field values in selected surfaces or volumes. Additional information is also made available, such as discontinuous compartment surface electric fields and associated surface electric charge distributions.
