subtract

Boolean subtraction operation on two RF PCB shapes

Description

example

c = subtract(shape1,shape2) subtracts shape1 and shape2 using the subtract operation. You can also use the - symbol to subtract the two shapes.

Examples

Create and display a cross trace shape.

trace = traceCross;
show(trace)

Figure contains an axes object. The axes object contains 2 objects of type patch. This object represents PEC.

Create and display an annular ring shape with an inner radius of 4 m.

ring = ringAnnular(InnerRadius=4);
show(ring)

Figure contains an axes object. The axes object contains 2 objects of type patch. This object represents PEC.

Subtract the annular ring from the cross trace and display the result.

shapeDiff = subtract(trace,ring);
show(shapeDiff)

Figure contains an axes object. The axes object contains 2 objects of type patch. This object represents PEC.

Create and display a curved bend shape.

bend1 = bendCurved;
show(bend1)

Figure contains an axes object. The axes object contains 2 objects of type patch. This object represents PEC.

Create and display a curved bend shape with a spatial offset.

bend2 = bendCurved(ReferencePoint=[-1 -1]);
show(bend2)

Figure contains an axes object. The axes object contains 2 objects of type patch. This object represents PEC.

Subtract the offset bend from the default bend and display the result.

shapeDiff = bend1 - bend2;
show(shapeDiff)

Figure contains an axes object. The axes object contains 2 objects of type patch. This object represents PEC.

Input Arguments

First shape created using custom elements and shape objects of RF PCB Toolbox™, specified as an object.

Example: shape1 = bendCurved; specifies the first shape as a bendCurved object.

Second shape created using custom elements and shape objects of RF PCB Toolbox, specified as an object.

Example: shape2 = ringAnnular; specifies the second shape as a ringAnnular object.
