WIPL-D AW Modeler

AW Modeler is a WIPL-D front-end for easy modeling of 3D objects and is particularly well suited for planar structures, such as microstrip. A 3D object can be interactively created and edited, by mouse point-and-click, on a non-uniform grid specified by symbols. The object can be composed of wires and planar polygons with arbitrary number of vertices. A polygon can have thickness to model finite thickness metallization. AW Modeler automatically generates vias, radial stubs and circular patches, and feeders as separate entities.

Simulation models created by AW Modeler are automatically converted to WIPL-D projects for further analysis and optimization. The user is free from manual meshing the structure: AW Modeler accurately and appropriately meshes all polygons, vias, metallization, and other.

Alternatively, DXF files can be imported to AW Modeler, edited if desired, and converted to WIPL-D projects.
