Making an impact at trade events and in customer presentations is increasingly difficult as the number of venders, media hype and advertising grows each year. When Siemens was looking for a novel way to present their new SGT-8000H series turbine they called upon their partnership with 3YOURMIND. The engine performs at an efficiency of 60.75% (TUV certified) in combination with the combined cycle operation. That makes it one of the most efficient gas-fired power plants in the world. The complex turbine combines proven product lines with innovative technologies, rendered with high-detail as a 3D model.
The primary model is motorized in addition to two standard 3D printed versions of the turbine. The turbine is made of Aluminide, the casing is Polyamide – both were printed using the SLS additive manufacturing technique. The movement and detail of the final model are both an “eye-catcher” and direct aid to describe the physical processes within the turbine.
