permanent magnet motor project

I will develop a model for a permanent magnet motor in steps and I wonder if this can be done in OpenFoam. This is what I want to do:
Step 1) Create 2D geometry of rotor and calculate stress and strain due to speed of rotation, i.e a mechanics problem with centrifugal forces.
Step 2) Add 2D stator and solve electromagnetic problem, either with current source or voltage source.
Step 3) Extrude model to 3D and add cooling airflow
Step 4) Solve electromagnetic 3D problem and use losses in CFD problem to get idea about temperature and gradients.
This is a big tasks but I have about 1 year to do it. Is it worth the effort to try and do it with OpenFoam or am I better of doing it with Comsol or Ansys?
