difference between 2d-simulator

what is the difference between 3d and 2d field simulation?
by example please

difference between 2d and 3d simulation

Hi THUNDERRr
In 2D simulation planar structures such as microstrip structures can be analyzed but in 3D simulation both planar and nonplanar structures such as waveguides, Horn antennas,.. can be analyzed. in later the meshing is based on 3D segments

I hope it'll be helpful

difference between 3d and 2d

Hello,

In 2D Field Solver it Computes Fields (say currents) in a Cross-section (X-Y plane)
so only meant for planar structures takes less computational effort (Memory & Time)

In 3D Field Solver it Computes 3D Fields in all directions and Currents Surrounding/On Arbitrary 3D Objects
good for Waveguides, etc but takes lot of computational effort (Memory & Time)

So people try to use 2.5D or 3D Planar Field Solvers to quickly & acceptable accuracy analysis
where it can handle Multilayer dielectrics & Vias
such solver examples are Sonnet em, Agilent Momentum, AWR AXIEM, Zeland IE3D, etc

See here more on this topic "Which EM Analysis Should I Use?"

difference between 2d and full 3d sim

is there something called 1 D simulation?

difference between 2d and 3d objects

Hello,

yes...1D is just equations or formulae or equivalent models...

Again see the attached documet ...
