Dear Daniel,
I have not tried solving any of the benchmark phase field problems of  the pfhub website (PFHub: Phase Field Community Hub). 

However, I will be solving them (benchmark problems) in nearby future, and most probably with MOOSE software, as I am currently working with the software.  Equally, I am interested to compare the results of MOOSE with sfepy + fipy .I have not worked yet with PRISMS , but recently I have read an article on it by Aagesen et al , 2018 (; and I am very much motivated to learn the concept of materials genome initiative and  ICME via phase field methods. So, I will soon learn PRISMS codes on phase field method . I have duly understood the need of benchmarking phenomenological phase field methods based tools, and so I will perform benchmark tests with the softwares. I will let you know personally, if I start any benchmark problems.
Thanks for being so inspiring.

Yours Sincerely,
Anil Kunwar

Yes, I'd like to solve a number of the phase field benchmark problems

Also, with some of the other FE solvers out there such as Moose and
Prisims PF. Have you tried solving any of the benchmark problems?
