Parametric Variables

The base CAD model was created in Onshape and allows the following design variables to be adjusted. By default the dimensions of the PZT Block have been addes as configuration variables for quick access through the Configuration Panel in Onshape.

Parametric Variable Description Default Value
pzt_sideX Dimension of PZT block in X 10 mm
pzt_sideZ Dimension of PZT block in Z 5 mm
pzt_thk Thickness of PZT block 2mm
