antenna.Polygon

Create polygon on X-Y plane

Description

Use the antenna.Polygon object to create a polygonal board shape centered at the origin and on the X-Y plane. You can use antenna.Polygon to create single-layer or multilayered antennas using pcbStack.

Creation

Description

polygon = antenna.Polygon creates a polygonal board shape centered at the origin and on the X-Y plane.

example

polygon = antenna.Polygon(Name,Value) sets properties using one or more name-value pair. For example, polygon = antenna.Polygon('Name','mypolygonboard') creates a polygon board shape of the name 'mypolygonboard'. Enclose each property name in quotes.

Properties

expand all

Name of the polygon board shape, specified a character vector or string.

Example: 'Name','Polygon1'

Example: polygon.Name = 'Polygon1'

Data Types: char | string

Cartesian coordinates of polygon vertices, specified as a N-by-3 vector with each element measured in meters, N being the number of points.

Example: 'Vertices',[-1 0 0;-0.5 0.2 0;0 0 0]

Example: polygon.Vertices = [-1 0 0;-0.5 0.2 0;0 0 0]

Data Types: double

Examples

collapse all

Create a polygon using antenna.Polygon with vertices at [-1 0 0;-0.5 0.2 0;0 0 0] and view it.

p = antenna.Polygon('Vertices', [-1 0 0;-0.5 0.2 0;0 0 0])
p = 
  Polygon with properties:

        Name: 'mypolygon'
    Vertices: [3x3 double]

show(p)
axis equal

Mesh the polygon and view it.

mesh(p,0.2)

Move the polygon to a new location on the X-Y plane.

translate(p,[2,1,0])
axis equal
