Hello, Does anyone know any free parametric 2d cad software? Basically i need a dxf editor that i can input coordinates of points using variables. Like the cad editor of hfss.
How to import autocad design to hfss ? I have export an autocad file in .sat format and imported in hfss. but in hfss it shows a different layout. please help
Hi Please can you advice to me how can i transfer (if it's possible) the hfss 3D layout design (2D modeler) to to hfss design (3D modeler)? I would like to at least check (by hfss design view) if my 2D model representation, port definition etc. in hfss 3D layout design is corrected setup. Thank for any help
Dear Aswin, Can you please give more details of your problem. I think the info you have provided is insufficient to understand your problem. No, you have to design by in stepwise manner. For steps you have to go to net and google it how to convert hfss file to gerber file. Thank You
Hi, I am learning hfss, and I am using to create microstrips antennas. I have the microstrip antenna design in jpeg, I have vectorized the picture and I have created the file with extension .dxf, then I have modified something in the design and I am trying to open the document .dxf or dwg in hfss. I do : (...)
dxf files, other than pdf or bitmap graphics come with exact dimensions, because it's a mechanical CAD data format. If you see wrong size, it's either a problem of your viewer or wrong dimensions setup in hfss. Nevertheless dxf files can be scaled to intended exact size in a CAD tool. A number of full featured gerber tools can import (...)
Hi, This is a simple problem which can be solved with ease. The solution is to construct your structure in hfss on the plane (x,y,z) = (0,0,0). If you have your structure above or below the 0 plane, then the .dxf file will be blank when opened in autocad.
Hi I want to export from hfss to ADS , I go through this page but I have problem with naming the layers?? it is mentioned in there that Go to the Advanced page and define the names of the dxf layers in your file. How can i find the dxf layers in my design?:bang::bang: Thank you for your help
I made a simple patch antenna in CST. Now I want to compare its results (S11) by designing it in ADS and hfss. I'm able to import dxf files from CST into hfss and ADS. I successfully simulated the design in hfss but was wondering if I can simulate the dxf file in ADS (Momentum) as well? Is it doable? (...)
Hi, I am working in Rotman lens antenna. i want to know how can i draw it in hfss and i hear that it is very difficult to do that . i have been started to draw it but it was very Creepy. So , i have read that it is simple to draw it by AutoCad and then import the dxf file in hfss. There is any help for Rotman Lens Drawing? either (...)
Hi moj14mja, While exporting the 2d geometry in hfss to dxf, only the geometry located at XY (i.e, Z=0) plane is exported. I think in your design ground and probe are at principal XY plane, so it is getting exported. your patch is at some height above the XY plane. To solve this you may follow any one of folling steps. a) Move the patch to XY plan
look at the available filetypes available for export from auocad, the look at the types available for import in hfss v. 11 and see if there's any that match. for hfss v.15: sab, sat, sm2, sm3, anstgeom, xls, dxf, dwg, exp, model, CatPart, CatProduct, gds, iges, igs, nas, x_t, x_b, prt, asm, step, stp, stl, sld are the import options.
hi, i have made a patch antenna in hfss.the problem is while exporting it to dxf , i only get the bottom face. can you help me in this regard? its urgenttttttt!!!! help meee :( thanks in advancee :) attached is the hfss original file.
hi, i am new in the field. can anyone help me in exporting the hfss file as dxf. i have set all z=0 bt still the dxf file has only bottom layer. my antenna is a simple patch antenna with partial ground thanx in advance
hi hfss can export the file for the mechanical software similar dxf or the others which all of them can be used in the altiume.
Dear All, I've designed some antennas in CST and hfss software but I'm going to add some components to them. I exported Gerber files in CST from them. Now, I'm going to Import it into Altium Designer and add some components or modify the PCB layout. I tried several times but I couldn't. Would you please let me know how can I import and modify
Assuming I designed a microstrip antenna, filter, coupler or simular, and drew and simulated it in hfss, how could I take that to get a PCB produced by a commerical PCB manufacturer? Any suggestions for UK PCB manufacturers that can produce boards on Rogers or similar laminates at sensible prices?
you can export your hfss design using ansoft geometry formats *.sm2 or *.sm3
The AutoCAD data exchange format for 2D layout is dxf. dxf can be imported into hfss and other EM simulators.
Hello, i have simulated the design in hfss and now for the fabrication purpose i have to make the negative of my design to make the pcb so i export the design to dxf design is converted into .dxf file but now i am not able to take its print out to make the negative. I am not able to convert it into jpg file with exact dimention. so please
by default hfss will only take the z=0 planes. so if you move your model and export it again it should work.
Hello attaran Got a dxf file,which you can convert to hfss file.Since its a complex geometry,its best drawn on autocad then uploaded to hfss for simulation.let me know if you are still interested. Regards Sajid Mohammed.
I have designed an siw structure, which consists of drills in substrate, in hfss and exported the same to dxf file so as to fabricate in T Tech machine available in our lab. The software used is isopro (most probably 3.0) by t tech co. The problem is that only vias are been shown in isopro software while importing the dxf file. There is a (...)

Hello, I am working for Sonnet, so I do not have access to hfss and can not check your files. From the messages that you have shown, it seems that hfss has created dxf layers that are not mapped in your ADS layer settings (e.g. "Design_21"). To find out what layers are created, and what their names are, you can use some (...)
I've never personally done this, but I'm pretty sure one issue you need to look into is to define the layer mapping from .gds/.dxf to .hfss during import. Have you done this?
Guys this is a very interesting thread. The general problem is to export the geometry found in a microwave CAD (hfss or ADS or others) to a PCB tool. I've always found a lot of problems using dxf, similar to the one you mention here. In my career I've found the same issue many times, and the manual solution has been the most practical one. Today
Hello, I need to analyze a waveguide with an unorthodox shape. I have the shape of the OUTER cross section (2D dxf - Customer info provided). I would like create IN hfss the INNER cross section contour. I can do that in Autocad, but unfortunately Autocad cannot read the dxf provided, so this is why I need to do that in
Hi, These files are the full human brain model in different versions of AutoCAD (2000 to 2010) in .dxf and .DWG format(acrually I export them from 3ds max), I'm trying to import them into hfss and run simulation on them. I searched a lot to find a human brain model in hfss, but I couldn't (The price of human brain in ansoft webpage is (...)
Hi Everyone, I am not able to import dxf files into Ansoft Designer 4 or to hfss 11/12. I am getting the following error when I tried to import, using Layout->Import File " viewport entity with no extended data" Any suggestions regarding this error? Thanks, sv
Hi, I want to Export a <256x256x128 double> matrix ( It's a multilayer image; it's human brain model) to a .dxf file, is there any way to do this?? I need it to work on it in hfss. So I am thinking of exporting a .dxf ,and then using AutoCAD export another one so at the end I am able to open the image in hfss. is there (...)
Hi, I am working on simulation of human brain, so I need to import a file to hfss, the file is a .mat file (MATLAB). is there any way to do this??? thanks,
I think one should go for AutoCAD in case of such curves.. First drwa the structue in that and than import the .dxf file in hfss Besties Kecbackbencher
I am modeling a 3dB wilkinson divider at 30 GHz. In ADS, the S parameters and performance is exactly what I would expect. I then export the layout in dxf and import it into hfss. After adding all the geometries and ports to hfss the model converges and solves. However, I have run into something that I can't explain. When I run the (...)
I would like to use Matlab to draw a geometry and then save it in dwg or dxf format to import into hfss. Does anyone have a code to generate dxf or dwg from a generic geometry like a square? Thanks in advance for your help.
hello, would anyone know how to effectively import a single layer layout file (dxf) into hfss ?
hi guys! how do i print my design to scale? i tried exporting it in jpg, bmp but it is not to scale i also tried dxf then opened it in Autocadd, again it is not to scale? i am simulating antennas and i would like to make the actual already to test it. but i can't! i need to print my design wit the right dimensions help! thanks al
.sat is catia/CAD file I think dxf should work. But what is the format you have? I am not sure that laser scanner output file will be opened in hfss. It it opens tell us too.
hfss can export a dxf file. Once you have that, you need a CAM editor, or other PCB software that can import the dxf and export the Gerber files. Without knowing what sofware you have at your disposal, it's difficult to give detailed directions. If you can get the dxf file, and you can't find software at your location (...)
A lumped port is assigned after drawing a rectangle on the antenna feed. How sensitive is it when considering the rectangle overlapping to GND, not in line with the input, small/big by cross section area compared to that of antenna input etc? I am importing the .dxf file of printed antenna pattern, which doesnt match with the grid setting often. An
Ok thank you for your reply, My problem with the import of file, I have some design with hfss I would obtain the layout using GerbTool so I import the file from hfss (*.dxf) and I try to export it under GerbTool but I don?t obtain the desired layout (it give me only the substrate and the ground plane only but not the structure on the top) (...)
Hi: One of my former colleague wrote the following cbs for hfss10 to read dxf and then convert to solid object. But how do I extend this to handle the case when I have more than one slices? Thanks, Dim oAnsoftApp Dim oDesktop Dim oProject Dim oDesign Dim oEditor Dim oModule Set oAnsoftApp = (...)
Send your ADS design to the Momentum Layout and save it as a dxf file(or what ever file format you can easily import to hfss). Now start hfss and look for that Momentum file. It should be straight forward. In Momentum go: "File"-->"Export" and pick the best format. Good luck.
Well I have converted the design made from hfss to dxf file and now I need to convert the dxf file to Gerber on Agilent ADS. I set the different colors on layout to distinguish the parts on dxf file but I would like to know more in detail as to what i need exactly on gerber file that is satisfy to send to PCB express to be (...)
Hi! I want to translate .geo file in IE3D or .hfss file in hfss into gerber file for PCB manufaction. My officemate teaches me to redraw the geometry in Protel 99se, and then convert the pcb file into the corresponding gerber file. Well, I think it is very easy to make mistake when redrawing. Can anybody know the software which can directly transla
hi friends, i want to simulate a 3d building first i have made a .3ds then i have made dxf but i dont have any software that will make .iges any software that will make iges file or any advice that make these operation more easier.
Hi, I've made some 3D designs in hfss and now want to export them for PCB fabrication. What I had done in the past was to use hfss -> SAT export -> AutoCad import of SAT -> dxf export -> ADS/Momentum dxf import -> Gerber export However, this doesn't work very well with what designs I have (the dxfs (...)
hi shakey, I guess You're using hfss v11. If it's true, let use 'Import method' as Script Method when you Import objects from .dwg or .dfx sources. You can do it at dxf/DWG IMPORT dialog -> Options Tab. Hope it helps!
