We design and build pressure vessels at my work and whilst they all have the same fundamental design they differ slightly for each job with nozzle positions, nozzle sizes, wall thicknesses etc. I'm wanting to create a full assembly of a pressure vessel which can be fully defined by a design table and then produce a drawing. The dream would be to have customers be able to type in their requirements into boxes on our website and have a general arrangement drawing automatically produced (am I dreaming too big?). The biggest hurdle I've come up against is the number of nozzles. If a customer wants extra nozzles we will need extra holes and parts mated to them. Is there any way to do this other than making extra holes ready and suppressing them?
If you can help in any way with this it would be much appreciated, I'd love to have something like this set up. Would save me so much time remodeling each and every order.
