How to save this as a .cfx file to be opened in FEKO

Recommended Posts

 From Direct mail to Altair University.

Greetings,

 I have extracted a model input file from a thesis which starts like this:

** Arecibo reflector as a casegrain system fed by crossed Dipoles
** Both Antenna Arrays Present (5.1 and 8.175 MHz)
** Active array 5.1 MHz
**
** Kyle Labowski
** Created: 9/29/2008
** Updated: 2/11/2009

** ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- **
** Variables **
** ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- **

** Scaling factor
#scaling = 0.3048 ** meters to feet

 

 

 

How can I save this as a .cfx file to be opened in FEKO?

I appreciate all the help.

Thanks!

Hello

 

FEKO models can be created and edited in one of two ways. The one is using CADFEKO (cfx files) and the other is by using EDITFEKO (pre files). Many years ago, all FEKO models were created using EDITFEKO (pre files). It is still possible to use more advanced options using EDITFEKO (even when the model is originally created in CADFEKO).
 

There is no automatic way to convert an EDITFEKO model (pre file) into a CADFEKO model (cfx file). If you don't want to use the EDITFEKO interface, you will have to re-build the model in CADFEKO (with or without using scripting).

 

Kind regards

JIF

Hi Rahul,

 

That code appears to come from a FEKO *.pre file.  CADFEKO doesn't import these directly, although it is simple to recreate the effect.  In this instance, there is simply one variable defined (i.e. "scaling").  There is a model attached that contains the variable as well as the original comments stored in the Notes view.  Is this what you had in mind?

Hi Rahul, 

 

 I attach the file extracted from the thesis. There are lots of lines here, is there a way to do this process automatically?
