Parametric 3D-model of a cyclone : A 3D-model of a cyclone made parametric in SolidWorks for fast production of new designs to Outotec Skellefteå (English)
This bachelor thesis project has been executed at Outotec Sweden AB in Skellefteå. Outotecs main business focus is selling mineral and metal processing technologies. A rest product from the metal process is particle-polluted gas and cyclone designs are today the most commonly used abatement device for particle control. A cyclone provides a simple design with high efficiency particle percolation by using air streams.
The purpose of this work is to reduce the time it takes create new cyclone designs in Outotecs projects. An extensive construction work is needed for every new cyclone order due to new designs. Therefore a parametric 3D-model of a cyclone is desired. The model has to be easy to use and quick to edit cyclone size and properties. From a previous project an existing 3D-model of a cyclone was used as a starting point to be revised and made parametric.
A method called top-down modeling was used to make the model parametric in SolidWorks. The top-down approach relates and defines the dimensions of each part to already existing components higher up in the assembly. In this model the cyclone gets its dimension values from a sketch-tree that is connected to variables in a equation table. The sketch-tree then drives the dimensions of all parts down through the cyclone assembly.
Next, construction drawings connected to the 3D-model were created. These drawings automatically get updated when the model gets resized. A user guide was written to simplify the use of the model. The main priority to create a parametric 3D-model of a cyclone was successfully completed with a model that is easy to use, quick to resize and modify.
