We present a new method to simulate repetitive ferromagnetic structures. This macrogeometry approach combines treatment of short-range interactions (i.e., the exchange field) as for periodic boundary conditions with a specification of the arrangement of copies of the primary simulation cell in order to correctly include effects of the demagnetizing field. This method (i) solves a consistency problem that prevents the naive application of three-dimensional periodic boundary conditions in micromagnetism and (ii) is well suited for the efficient simulation of repetitive systems of any size.
