Setting the Radiation Pattern Center

From the far field point of view, the whole structure of an antenna and its surroundings is reduced to a single point at the origin (X,Y,Z) = (0,0,0). So the standard practice of superimposing the 3D radiation pattern to the antenna structure is just a means to facilitate the interpretation of the directional characteristics of an antenna.

For this reason, you can move the phase origin of the 3D radiation pattern to the desired point to get a better view of the antenna orientation versus its radiation pattern. Go to the Setup tab > Far-Field > Origin and set the X0, Y0, Z0 coordinates of the radiation pattern center. Refer to Far Field Parameters.
