Is there a way to create a custom geometric structure via a script and/or is is this the right approach. First, I want to create a custom multicore fiber, using cylinders somehow. Then, I want to taper that multicore fiber into a multimode fiber (essentially creating a photonic lantern) using truncated cones.
I have the same problem on create multicore fibre. I have tried to combine a cylinder with a pc array but it didn’t work. there were always some overlapping areas and the refractive index of both the center core and outer core would be wrong as a result.
What I’d like to find is an example of how to create the geometry of a ring structure or possibly extract and modify the vertices and facets from addring. Unfortunately, I didn’t find anything like that.
Here’s a slightly different approach, based on the truncated cone. I receive an “invalid planar solid” error. Could someone look at this one? Seems like I’m close, but missing something. cladding_ring2.lsf (2.5 KB)
I think the main difference is, I only used 1 cell per facet, and I got rid of the Bc terms in x,y,z.
