Paper Title:
The Application of UG NX Second Development in Centrifugal Pump Impeller Vane 3D Solid Modeling

The hydraulic model of the impeller and points of its vane surface given in the cylindrical coordinates, we can not directly use those data to accomplish the 3D solid modeling of the impeller in CAD systems. Based the Access and the UG NX, this paper puts forwards a new method for modeling centrifugal pump impeller vanes and presents the implementing procedure. And the method includes the following steps: 1) defining the data structure of hydraulic models; 2)converting the vane surface data from the cylindrical coordinate system to the cartesian coordinate system; 3)constructing the vane’s working surface and back surface along the axial transversals; 4) accomplishing the impeller’s 3D solid model by UG NX Second Development. The practical application demonstrates that the proposed method can shorten the cycle of impeller modeling and improve the design precision.
