In my opinion, the Negative step (step 2) is really not necessary. If the solids you draw are all PEC, just import them into cst, set the background material to be free space, set the objects imported to be PEC. Then cst is "smart" enough to know that the fields needs to be solved are in your "Negative" region. Similar thing happens when using HFSS

Hi, I would like to import a pattern diagram in cst and to generate a array antenna with it. Is it possible?
Thank you in advance

To desigh the patch antenna You can use 2.5D simulator (MWO, Sonnet), or cst-MWS if Your structure has many layers. To Yagi-Uda ... usually the formulas from Balanis book gives the good result, but if You want to simulate it, try to use SuperNEC or cst-MWS.

I noticed that cst uses a lot more mesh cells if you haven´t got a planar structure (such as a curved body of an aircraft) I had to use staircase mesh for the imported sheet body.

For 80% accuracy you can use PCAAD V5 (just 450$) if you need more accurate 3D design use cst (MWS)It more user friendly for 3D then Ansoft (HFSS)
For 2D printed antenna use ZELAND

I've got a problem when using a discrete port in cst Microwave Studio 5.1.2. It's a pretty basic thing, I think.
I want to do a transient analyses for a simple monopole structure. So I choose a discrete port between the monopole and the PEC surface. In the manual they state that such a discrete S-port has to be small enough, at least 1/1

My problem regards E-field probe signal results under different mesh settings.
I have an antenna model with an E-field probe set in its far-field region.
In my opinion the antenna is well meshed, i.e. the mesh "sees" all the important parts.
As I thicken the mesh density the E-field results change.
Has anyone encountered this

cst calculates the gain as the total received power so it includes both Ex^2 + Ey^2. if you need the gain of horizontal polarization then select Phi pattern, and vertical select theta pattern (or vice versa according to your antenna orientation)
if they are in dBi, you are right, you should add 3dB to calculate the power received by a CP (...)

3-D plot gives you the contour in three dimensions (by default, the maximum field/power is shown in red).
