Have you ever wondered how to share components built in the STK Component Browser with other users or between scenarios? Well, wonder no more.
To easily create and reuse a component in STK:
Access the Component Browser from the Utilities->Component Browser menu.
Select a component and click the Duplicate… button to duplicate it.
- Double-click the duplicated component to edit it, and then save it.
Use the Export… button to export your component to a file that can be loaded (via the Load… button) into another scenario or shared with another user.
In the following example, I created a multibeam transmitter model and added 18 beams with varying antenna orientations to it, as shown in the following two images.
I then clicked Export… to save the component as a Transmitter file, as shown below..
Lastly, I clicked the Load… button in the Component Browser of another scenario to load in my 18-beam Transmitter model.
The transmitter model in this example shows up as a Transmitter Type.
Thus, a library of prebuilt components can be stored and shared among scenarios and users.
