October 20, 2020 at 12:00 pmrtkAnsys Employee,nCould you please elaborate your query a little more?nLike, whether you need to write a stack-up file (xml file) of a layered model, so as to import it in HFSS 3D layout.. or you need to create a .dxf from an existing model.nPlease clarify.nThanks!n
October 20, 2020 at 12:45 pmdoublehelixSubscriberI have to write a DXF file of array of annular ring elements and then to load it in HFSS. Purpose of writing the DXF file of array elements is that they are very large in number and each square annular ring is different in dimension and it is impossible to draw them manually. I am successfully able to write DXF file for solid patch elements and then to load it in HFSS but I have trouble making annular ring elements. I am making use of Python EZDXF function to write dxf file. This function makes use of polyline /line functions to draw closed shapes like square etc. But I am stuck that how to subtract two squares to make an annular ring using EZDXF function. Or may be if there is some other way. n

October 22, 2020 at 3:24 pmdoublehelixSubscriberWhat other formats are good ?? There are lots in the list. At the end, they should be easily programmable using Python or MATLAB.n
October 29, 2020 at 10:30 amrtkAnsys Employee,nIf you are keen to create a dxf file using Python scripting, I would suggest creating them in python itself without subtracting (like the way you've done),... and import it to HFSS. After importing you can use another script or a manual process to subtract the two consecutive circles to form an annular ring. nOr if your ultimate goal is to create that array inside HFSS, then I would suggest- use the IronPython scripting with HFSS modules and create the array. You can find more details on the HFSS Scripting Help document. nHope this eases your simulation!nnBest Regards,n
