# Geometry Construction Using Ansys HFSS — Lesson 5

The first step of the simulation is creating the geometry of the design. This lesson teaches geometry creation in Ansys HFSS. It navigates you through some options which are useful in creating any model geometry.

This lesson consists of three workshops:

### Workshop 5.1

This workshop covers the simulation aspects of geometry creation for a microstrip bend. The outline for this workshop is as follows:
initializing project setup >> setting up Solution Type and Units >> creating a substrate >> creating ground plane >> creating microstrip bend trace >> creating rectangle for port >> thickening the trace and assigning copper material

### Workshop 5.2

This workshop covers the simulation aspects of geometry creation for a waveguide filter. The outline for this workshop is as follows:
initializing project setup >> setting up Solution Type and Units >> creating the box >> creating the irises >> assigning copper finite conductivity boundary

var option_df_35906 = {"outline":[],"backgroundColor":"#898A8D","forceFit":"true","autoEnableOutline":"false","autoEnableThumbnail":"false","overwritePDFOutline":"false","direction":"1","pageMode":"1","source":"https:\/\/courses.ansys.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2021\/07\/HFSS_GS_2020R2_EN_WS5.2_WGfilterGeo.pdf","wpOptions":"true"}; if(window.DFLIP && DFLIP.parseBooks){DFLIP.parseBooks();} 

### Workshop 5.3

This workshop covers the simulation aspects of boundary assignment to the bandpass filter. The outline for this workshop is as follows:
open BP filter >> view default boundaries >> simulate it >> copy design in same project >> unite the three vacuum solid objects >> assign finite boundary conditions using copper material >> simulate it

var option_df_35907 = {"outline":[],"backgroundColor":"#898A8D","forceFit":"true","autoEnableOutline":"false","autoEnableThumbnail":"false","overwritePDFOutline":"false","direction":"1","pageMode":"1","source":"https:\/\/courses.ansys.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2021\/07\/HFSS_GS_2020R2_EN_WS5.3_BPFFinCond.pdf","wpOptions":"true"}; if(window.DFLIP && DFLIP.parseBooks){DFLIP.parseBooks();}
