This is a simulated turbine frame I used as test case for printing an engineering component.
It is about 192 mm across (7.55").


vane_3_130322d.stl is the vane as shown.
vane_130303k.stl is a smaller version 112 mm across scaled down but maintains a 2mm wall thickness

ANSYS users:
mk_vane_3_130322d.mac creates the geometry and .stl in ANSYS for vane_3_130322d.stl
mk_vane_130303k_good.mac creates the geometry and .stl for vane_130303k.stl

both ANSYS scripts call ansys_2_stl_cyclic_101024a.mac which is available at
