The remote optical heads (OPX heads) for Boreal Laser’s new dual-channel gas analyzer needed to remove the need for expensive and clumsy covers while minimizing cost. I carried out multiple detailed design revisions. I ended up doing a top-cover design out of a standard square extrusion, which allowed for full assembly on a baseplate before putting on the cover. This greatly simplified product assembly. The product met IP66 enclosure sealing requirements and could withstand temperatures from -40 to +85 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 2016-2017.
