SIXTH PROJECT: A high vacuum diffusion pump designed with DSM 5

I am a physicist, working as a research technician at the Institute of Electronic Structure & Laser of the Foundation for Research & Technology - Hellas, in Heraklion, Crete, Greece. Our institute is a satisfied RS customer. I am specialised in lasers and vacuum technology. I am also a CAD designer with years of experience. DSM is currently my primary CAD software. "ScieRtist"

Hello TAH1712!
Most of these are existing equipment, which I transfer into 3d CAD designs so that i can practice on DSM as much as possible, as well as having the designs available when needed. For example there may be the need in the future to modify them somehow, add or remove parts etc.
As for the astrotorus trap and the pump, i used 2d sketches i found from the manufacturing company. There were a lot of complex shapes which i found challenging to make, and learned a ton of new things of the DSM software, which is very powerfull...

Thanks - that's quite interesting. I've seen a few of your articles now. Are these 'designs' actually going to be made or are they for academic interest?
It would be nice to see a close view of the"astrotorus" cold trap. Also, that would look very nice with the enhanced shading in V5.
Thanks again for publishing.
