Creating the Plate

Create the plate. Apply the UTD solution method to the plate.

  1. Create the plate.
    1. Create a rectangle.
      • In the Workplanes group in the tree, right-click on Global YZ and select Set as default.
      • Definition method: Base corner, width, depth
      • Base corner (C) = (-3, 0, 0)
      • Width (W) = 6
      • Depth (D) = 3
      • Label: metal_plate.
  2. Set the default Workplane to Global XY.
  3. Set the UTD solution properties on the metal_plate part.
    Tip: Open the Face properties dialog and click the Solution tab. From the Solve with special solution method list, select Uniform theory of diffraction (UTD).
