This lecture deviates from electromagnetics and discusses the interface between MATLAB and CAD, which is presently very crude. Creating and reading text files is discussed following by STL file reading and writing. The lecture goes on to describe how to create geometries in MATLAB and export them to CAD.
This course by Dr. Raymond C. Rumpf is intended to teach students about electromagnetic devices and how they may look and operate in coming decades. Special attention will be paid to periodic structures, metamaterials, and structures fabricated by 3D printing. Devices will be designed and analyzed using tools developed during the prerequisite course “Computational Electromagnetics” as well as some new tools developed in this course.
