► VOLUTE | Model settings

On dialog Model settings you can specify how many data points are to be used for the 3D model and for the point based export formats.

The number of points can be set for both cases separately for all geometry parts.

Spiral:                        cross sections, points per cross section

Diffuser:                        cross sections

Cutwater (sides):        cross sections, points per cross section

The cutwater cross sections setting does not refer to the center face, because its section count is determined by the number of points of the spiral and by the side position.

3D Model


Distance tolerance

The distance tolerance defines the maximum allowed distance between sewed surfaces, e.g the faces of a solid.

If it is too small, the solids cannot be created.

If it is too big, small faces are ignored when creating a solid.

Point Export


Select from 3 global presettings.

When a new volute is created the model settings of the last opened volute are adopted.
