Abstract

This paper presents the development of three low-cost high-performance horn antennas in Ku band, fabricated with the Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) technology, included among the Additive Manufacturing (AM) techniques. The horn antennas have been designed, printed, metallized and measured in order to assess their suitability for communication applications. They are light and robust structures, quickly manufactured and for a very low price, which makes them available for small labs with reduced budget or academic purposes. Besides, they include some challenging shapes very difficult to achieve with traditional manufacturing. Despite all the restrictions, there is an excellent agreement between simulations and experimental results, which validates the approach to obtain competitive 3D printed Ku band horns in plastic.
