NOTE: All 3D Display windows in HFSS will have a BLACK background. This is not currently editable in HFSS Version 7. Graphical window images have been inverted for this and all subsequent training presentations for better paper reproduction.
Solution Monitoring Window
1. Define type of project
Driven is excitedEigenmode is not
2. Construct the geometry to be analyzed.
5. Set up solution parameters
3. Define materials used in the model.
6. EXECUTE SOLUTION!
7. Review results of analysis Matrix Data and Plot access S-parameters, etc. Fields accesses field visual- ization and calculations
4. Define boundary conditions and source excitations for the model
(Optional Step: Define outputparameters for emissionsproblems; access ports-onlysolutions.)
