In this project for Boreal Laser, I designed the optics attached to the bottom of the point sensor version of the digital gas analyzer family. The goal was to minimize cost by using off-the-shelf material as much as possible while minimizing machining steps. After a few iterations the correct balance between performance and cost was struck, and it was implemented in the final certified product, which met IP66 sealing requirements and could withstand temperatures from -40 to +50 C.
Software used: Solidworks. Renders done using Photoview 360 Solidworks add-in. 3D printed PLA prototype validation carried out using Slic3r and Repetier software on a Machinacorp Mk2 printer.
Work done in 2015-2017.
