Add component

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Components can be added at inlet or outlet side of the currently selected component.

There are 2 alternative possibilities to add components to the current project:

Use + button in the Meridian view

Use + button in the component list on left side

 

 

In the menu the component type can be selected. Depending on the specific insert position some of the types can be disabled:

up to 5 impellers in a project

a single volute only

impeller can be added only if the flow direction on the selected position is suitable to the impeller geometry.

The menu is identical to the menu that is visible automatically after creating a new project.

Please note:
If you add a component on the first position of the project (in flow direction) then the inlet conditions defined in the Global setup are applied for this new component.

After importing existing components, initially the component is disabled in order to preserve the original geometry. After activation the component will be updated and could be modified.

Load from CFturbo-file (*.cft)

CFturbo components can be extracted from existing CFturbo projects (*.cft) and inserted in the current project.

The available components of the imported project are listed with their name and type and can be selected for import.

Import 3D-data from various formats

New components can be created using external geometry description.

Details can be found under Import external geometry.
