I see only one way: make the VB script in hfss or AutoCAD to drawing the parabola. But in any cases it will be only approximate parabola by polyline, however it's unimportant, because the simulation method cause much more error compared to this inaccuracy.

yes, you can import files in format of GDSII, IGES, dxf, DWG, SLD, etc.

Do I have to start all the designs from scratch or is there any way to import these designs into hfss?

I think you should create a line and then select your geometry, select the line and then choose Draw-> Sweep along line..
You should get your 3D drawing. For more instruction, look at the help file for sweeping along the line.

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 (...)

Try saving as a .sat file and then opening in the program of your choice to save as a .dxf. You may have to fool with the ACII ver to get the import to go smoothly.

If you use hfss 9, then things are more or less quite same with Microwave Studio's 3D modeler... The concept of 3D drawing is the same.
If you prefer another 3D drawing tool then you must export your geometry to .SAT or any other 3D format... dxf is a planar drawing format. That's why you get only a plane interpretation of your original geometry

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 (...)

I think dxf is not good for this problem :wink:
Try STL format (it describes 3D object by mesh that is spread on object surface .. so if you have scanned object by 3d laser scanner the STL format describe your object with no problem). Originally, this format is developed to this task (STereoLithography).
400 000 faces are quite good. Sometimes

Maybe if you have exported your model to dxf in CST and then importe to Altium, it may not work because dxf (in CST 5.0 atleast) is 2D and all layers may not have been exported precisely.
What I would suggest is to export the file in *.step or *.sat. Then may be you will have to again convert this to DWG using any CAD / CAM softwares and (...)
