This paper presents a novel design of a wideband high-gain resonant cavity antenna (RCA) for millimetre and

reflecting surface and three impedance matching layers fed by a waveguide. Additive manufacturing (AM) techniques are

first technique is based on printing a dielectric material and fully coating the parts with a metallic layer, while the second

solution while the second technique can print the whole model in one run. The antenna design is investigated by both

for all the three resulting antennas. Good agreement between simulation and measurement is obtained. The antenna has a

wireless communications at millimetre-wave and sub-millimetre-wave frequencies.
