Objects with Rectangular Cross Sections (Cuboid)

Objects like arms or tubes can also have a rectangular cross-section, and therefore you can also model these cuboids with the following parameters:
  • width
  • depth
  • height
  • position (X, Y and Z coordinates)

Each cuboid consists of a bottom, ceiling and four walls. But bottom and ceiling of the cuboid are not modeled as their influence on the resulting pattern can be neglected.

The radomes of sector antennas can be approximated with cuboids. The cross-section of sub-arms is always a quadratic (width and depth are identical).
