Update on CAD work

Recommended Posts

Hello EZ People,

I have been going through some CAD data I imported from somewhere else, checking, and correcting where needed.

Now I am busy capturing what I can of the main gear, but I have been working in the fuselage tub too.

There has been discussion about digitising the EZ PDF drawings. I think this adds no accuracy, and you can work just as well with the existing PDF data. Modelling in 3D creates parts that fit together correctly. 2D drawings can be generated from these 3D parts, and that is my aim to help with Open EZ. The original Rutan build instructions were quite clever, because the build became self jigging, and got round the inaccuracies in the drawings. I think it can be better today.

Here are a few screenshots from recent work.
