Modeling approach question for stent geometry

Modeling approach question for stent geometry

Proe users,



I need to determine the best modeling approach to model a stent, providing
an easily parametric driven model. The variables I need to control are, wire
cross sectional diameter (only a circle), overall perimeter (this may be a
circle an ellipse, or a square w/ rounded corners), length, and diamond
width and length. I can think of many approaches as to how to accomplish
this but wanted to poll the experts to get tested approaches for pros and
cons.



Thank you

Modeling approach question for stent geometry

Hi Ryan
See this post on mcadcentral:

short, for the stents we have worked on, we use a Flatten Quilt / Bend Solid
approach. It's a little obscure but not that hard once you understand the
workflow, and this approach seems to work for both simple and complex
geometries.

However, for a square with rounded corners perimeter, that approach may not
work...
