This is a bit of fun. This job was to use our in-house design tools, SolidWorks Computer Aided Design software, publicly available 3 view drawings and photos to create a 3D Solid Model that could be used to generate wing, fuselage and canopy composite and built-up components for a remote control model aircraft.
The model initially is intended to be a 1/3 scale Electric Ducted Fan (EDF) version but a 1/2 scale gas turbine is likely.
The SubSonex is an experimental, single-place, amateur-built jet from Sonex Aircraft’s “Hornet’s Nest” development division. The aircraft is often referred to in the industry as a “microjet”. Wikipedia.
The version modeled is the SubSonex JSX-2.
At SCAD Design we have performed many projects involving reverse engineering parts for specifications and re-manufacturing. We can utilize various techniques from pure old-school hand measuring right through to 3D scanning very complex details. It all depends on the details of the parts, the accuracy required and optimizing the process.
