The basic issue here is that hfss and the associated files are 3D in nature. A Gerber is used to fabricate a printed circuit and is basically 2D. hfss supports a variety of file formats. The one useful here is a *.dxf which is supported by hfss . This file is convertible to a Gerber using software like PADS. Keep an eye (...)
Hello, I had tried importing a .dxf file in Ansoft hfss but I cant open the file in hfss. Can you please provide me the steps to import .dxf to .hfss. Thank you.
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.
dxf format is industrial standard.hfss will accept it..
hfss supports the import of a variety of 3D files. If you have a 2D file (*.dxf possibly?) you could import that and use it as the basis for drawing a 3D model for simulation.
The only way I know of is to export a dxf file then convert it into a Gerber by using a Gerber editor/converter program such as CAM350, FAB3000 or Gerbtool. None of which are free tools. Alternately you can use a data conversion company. Here are some links: Gerber Editors / Viewers, ODB++ Viewers, Data Conversion / Translation Software: w
Creating useful dxf vector data from bitmap is not trivial. Check your file in AutoCAD or another CAD package. For filled copper area you want to have closed polyline with zero width.
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 hel
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 (...)
Just had the same problem when importing to LPKF CAM software. The correct answer - all the planar objects must be collected exactly at Z=0. Then dxf export/import works fine.
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.
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 then impo
The standard format for sending PCB layout for manufacturing is Gerber RS274X for the layout files and Excellon for the drill files, but those PCB manufacturers who support Rogers substrates usually accept dxf as well. A few notes on dxf: - Unlike Gerber, dxf can have many layers in one file. There is no need to split the layout into (...)
IGES, STEP and dxf should as well be available in both simulators. If you have cracked versions, you may have to struggle a bit for exporting and importing. If the structure is simple, its best to redraw the same.
