Shapes and Boolean Operations

Geometric shapes, mathematical operations

Use the geometrical shapes and mathematical operations to create and combine unique antenna geometries suitable for your antenna specifications. For example, you can use these objects and functions in pcbStack, to create single or multi-layered PCB-based antenna designs.


antenna.CircleCreate circle centered at origin on X-Y plane
antenna.PolygonCreate polygon on X-Y plane
antenna.RectangleCreate rectangle centered at origin on X-Y plane


addBoolean unite operation on two shapes
areaCalculate area of shape in sq.m
subtractBoolean subtraction operation on two shapes
intersectBoolean intersection operation on two shapes
plusShape1 + Shape2
minusShape1 - Shape2
andShape1 & Shape2
rotateRotate shape about axis and angle
rotateXRotate shape about X-axis and angle
rotateYRotate shape about Y-axis and angle
rotateZRotate shape about Z-axis and angle
translateMove shape to new location
showDisplay antenna or array structure; Display shape as filled patch
meshMesh properties of metal or dielectric antenna or array structure
plotPlot boundary of shape
scaleChange the size of the shape by a fixed amount
