I am curious how everyone gets their RF/microwave designs from their preferred simulation/design suite (HFSS is just an example) into a gerber file for fabrication.
What's a good workflow, including programs you use and tricks & tips?
The real problem for me has been that a lot of the RF designs I work on have a lot of shapes and/or fills that aren't able to be natively re-drawn in PCB software like Eagle or kicad.
I can usually export a DXF, but complex objects just seem to export to a polyline, which cannot be filled in either kicad or Eagle, to my knowledge.
I suppose the krux of my problem is a duplicate of: How to create complex copper shapes in Eagle , but I didn't want to limit the question to Eagle if someone has a better solution to the problem.
