EMCoS Antenna Vlab

CAD Interface

Antenna VirtualLab gives a convenient interface for fast prototyping of calculation of model. It easily controls the powerful solver modules and accesses the results.
For simplicity, EMCoS Antenna VirtualLab is divided into three modes:
Geometry Mode - used for initial geometry primitives construction. Here antennas and their environment can be constructed with comfortable CAD features allowing various geometry operations to be performed with minimal effort.
Model Mode - used for assignment of physical properties to geometry objects. Electrical parameters can be given to geometry. RLC circuits can be constructed to represent lumped devices.
Mesh Mode - model objects are converted to discrete elements ready for calculations. In this mode all calculation elements are accessible and can be further processed or fine tuned, if required, by advanced user.

Standard CAD Formats Processing

Complex shaped models created by CAD software can be imported into EMC Studio. EMC Studio supports the following CAD data file formats:

  • SAT (*.sat) - ACIS geometry solid model files
  • IGES (*.igs) - Industry standard Initial Graphics Exchange Specification (IGES) files
  • STEP (*.stp, *.step) - Standard for the Exchange of Product Model Data (STEP) files
  • Parasolid (*.x_t, *.x_b) - Parasolid files
  • CATIA V4 (*.model) - CATIA V4 files
  • CATIA V5 (*.CATPart) - CATIA V5 files
Advanced CAD and Meshing Functions
  • Boolean operations (union, intersect, subtract) for complex models creation
  • Transformation operations (translate, rotate, mirror) on CAD models
  • Multiple transformation operations
  • Removal of faces in complex models
  • Assignment of different meshing size to edges and faces
  • Meshing of CAD model considering meshing sizes
  • ReMesh functionality
