Engineering airflow

By on July 23, 2016

I took some time today while we were working on the rest of the project to design up what I think will be a workable fixture for the air filters. The cone on the front is a to-scale approximation of the air filter I have right now. The cone on the back end is an approximation of the air bladder. There’s actually an interior PVC tube modelled in there that I expect to connect.

This is being designed in this way so that I can use it as the actual air intake for the fans that will be in the airbag behind my head blowing air into the mask. The part should have a pretty straight connection through between the filter and the airbag, and I did my best to keep it from narrowing too much smaller than the 40mm tubing that leads to the 40mm fans.

In the interest of making this easy to print (since printing suspended parts or curves vertically can be challenging) I sectioned the model into two pieces.


Figure I’ll make the files available for anyone who might find them useful!
