Creating a Custom Array Element

Create a custom array element. Use a custom array element to create an irregular-spaced array.

  1. On the Construct tab, in the Structures group, click the  Planes/Arrays icon. From the drop-down list, select the  Custom Array Element icon.
  2. Under Origin, enter the position of the workplane using one of the following methods:
    • Enter the coordinates for the origin manually.
    • Use point entry to enter the coordinates for the origin from the 3D view.
  3. Under Excitation, in the Magnitude scaling field, enter the excitation magnitude for the element.
  4. Under Excitation, in the Phase offset (degrees) field, enter the phase offset for the element in degrees.
  5. In the Label field, add a unique label for the antenna array.
