# Shapes and Boolean Operations

Geometric shapes, mathematical operations

Use the geometrical shapes and mathematical operations to create and combine unique antenna geometries suitable for your antenna specifications. For example, you can use these objects and functions in pcbStack, to create single or multi-layered PCB-based antenna designs.

## Objects

 antenna.Circle Create circle centered at origin on X-Y plane antenna.Polygon Create polygon on X-Y plane antenna.Rectangle Create rectangle centered at origin on X-Y plane

## Functions

 add Boolean unite operation on two shapes area Calculate area of shape in sq.m subtract Boolean subtraction operation on two shapes intersect Boolean intersection operation on two shapes plus Shape1 + Shape2 minus Shape1 - Shape2 and Shape1 & Shape2 rotate Rotate shape about axis and angle rotateX Rotate shape about X-axis and angle rotateY Rotate shape about Y-axis and angle rotateZ Rotate shape about Z-axis and angle translate Move shape to new location show Display antenna or array structure; Display shape as filled patch mesh Mesh properties of metal or dielectric antenna or array structure plot Plot boundary of shape scale Change the size of the shape by a fixed amount
