Why assemble an RF component when it can be printed? Three-dimensional (3D) printing holds great promise for the design and manufacturing of many RF/microwave components. The use of 3D printers offers tremendous opportunities for achieving reduced size, weight, and lead times for complex designs. Antennas are one such component, where smaller sizes and weights can benefit portable communications systems, satellite communications (satcom) systems, and airborne systems such as those on unmanned
