    This papers discusses an effective framework for determining the number and direction of all possible grating lobes in the case of three-dimensional (3D) array antennas. Illustrating examples support the introduced theoretical concepts. The analysis highlights some intrinsic benefits of using 3D architectures, when compared with planar arrays. It also presents incentives for including the discussion of this class of conceptually relevant systems in (under)graduate curricula.
