hi, I am looking for help to arrive has introduced a file in HFSS to design an antenna. I am waiting for help to learn how to enter a drawing is not regular (square, rectangle ... etc)
shlomo22 said:HFSS will import many CAD formats. If your design is in a format HFSS can't import, looking online will often find you a program which converts to a format HFSS can import.
Beware, however, that HFSS designs using imported files are sometimes much larger (file and memory size) and thus much slower to simulate than designs made from scratch in HFSS. So if possible, it can be better to input the design by hand, or else using the matlab-hfss API (google it, it's very useful).

kosolson2005 said:I think you can just import any cad drawing into HFSS by going to the Modeler tab and choose import. I know for sure you can import dxf files.
shlomo22 said:I assume HFSS can't import ".tab (X, y)" data. I would use matlab-hfss API to write an HFSS file based on the data. You have to know how to use matlab of course.
