Assembly and Motion Simulation of Turntable of Drilling Rig Based on SolidWorks
Three-dimensional solid model of a turntable of a drilling rig is built utilizing the modeling functions of an engineering software SolidWorks. The virtual assembly for every components of the turntable is accomplished with the given assembly sequence in SolidWorks environment. The motion simulation and animation of simulation processes for the turntable under given conditions are carried out with module SOSMOSMotion of SolidWorks, and the dynamic interference check is also completed, so as to guarantee the correctness of the part design and improve the overall design efficiency, accuracy and intuitiveness. The study of assembly and motion simulation of the turntable based on SolidWorks can lay the foundation for communication and evaluation of design process as well as the manufacturing of the overall drilling rig.
