This section explains how to create a biconical antenna.

When the option is selected, the next panel and a previsualization of the antenna with the parameters on the panel are displayed.

Figure 1. Biconical panel
  • Position: set the Cartesian coordinates for the position of the antenna. For the antenna, the user can select the position with the mouse, selecting the 'Pick' check box and clicking any point in the geometry panel.
  • Radius: set the values for the radius of the conical geometries of the antenna.
  • Other Params: set the value for the height of the conical geometries of the antenna. Selecting the'Cover' option,the caps in both ends of the antenna geometry will be created.

For each modification on parameters panel, this previsualization will be updated for the new parameters.

Clicking on 'Add' button, the current previsualization turns on the final visualization for the antenna with a red dashed line for the coaxial feed.
