Andrés Felipe Chapeton Calderon is an engineering student at Universidad San Buenaventura in Columbia. He entered his Solid Edge design of a Motor Turbofan into the Siemens PLM Software Student Design Competition.
We caught up with Andres to ask him about his design and here’s what he had to say:
I want to continue my dream of becoming the best designer.
- What is your field of study?
My field of study is aeronautic engineering
- Why did you choose this project/design – what gave you the idea?
Because it was a project of the university, I had to design a turbofan engine
3.What challenges did you face during the design/build?
The biggest challenge was to make the design of the compressor and turbine stages also to assemble these parts with the combustion chamber.
- What features of Solid Edge did you use to develop your project?
I work in ordered by using operations as: Extrude for fan, revolution and revolution cutting, for compressor and turbine stages and combustion chamber, protrusion sections,pattern and symmetry for airfoils and holes of combustion chamber.
- Would you recommend Solid Edge to another student? Why or Why not?
I recommend the Solid Edge program because it is a very versatile and intuitive program facilitates the design and is very accurate in construction
