Todays focused ion beam (FIB) systems enable the fast and flexible fabrication of 3D structures with dimenFocused ion beam; FIB; FIB patterning; patterning simulation; patterning strategysions well below 100 nm. Due to secondary effects like redeposition of sputtered material, however, the fabrication of a targeted shape of the structure is not simple at all. In this work, the influence of the patterning strategy during the sputtering on the shape of a 3D structure with rotational symmetry is studied. Highly different shapes of 3D structures are achieved only due to different rastering strategies or duration times of the ion beam at each raster pixel. The final structure shape can be properly modeled with IonShaper simulations. The results clearly prove that the selection of the patternin g strategy is the key for appropriate FIB processing of 3D structures. Besides, it is shown that unconventional patterning strategies might enable new types of 3D shapes.
