setting up a geometry..

Post by crooky » Fri 10 Jul 2015, 00:11


I've followed the MSL Notch tutorial which went ok.. I'd like to do more but I don't have a good understanding of how to define shapes ( the xml definitions ). Is there anything that gives a more detailed explanation of the xml setup. For instance I'd like to sim an edge coupled filter and the effect of a metal wall over a MSL, but I struggle to know how to define the shapes..

Many thanks

you are not supposed to write the xml definitions manually. That's why the Matlab/Octave interface exists ...
Use the help for all the AddBox, AddSphere etc. to understand how to use these.
If you have to, use Matlab to create the xml file and have a look what they look like in the end..
