Beamforming using custom phases for each array element.

I want to be able to take an MxM matrix of phase values (between -180 and 180), apply those to an MxM rectangular array of custom antenna elements, and produce a 3d beam Pattern. The Sensor Array Analyzer app does roughly what I want to be able to do, but it seems as though any steering in the matlab phase array toolbox is done through Mathwork's own beamforming/steering (input an Az/El).
There seems to be the ability to apply custom tapering to antenna elements already but is there a way to do this with element phases as well?

Like you said, you can use custom tapering on elements. Just convert the phase to the corresponding complex number and specify it as the taper.
