BTW, this project is called Double Feature named by John Wilke.
Glad I could help 8) I’ll get out of your way now.
This is probably the most complex rocket I’ve ever seen attempted? I feel like a total hack when I see something like this.
We have some real talent in the club. Joe and Ed’s Saturn V, as well as a host of other projects are just so incredible…. it is a real treat to see these things. Doug, you have raised the bar — for all of us.
drew things up in either Solidworks or Pro/Engineer and had the software figure out the intersection shapes and possibly even make cutting templates or exported it to an NC tooling package like MasterCAM to cut the parts
Actually don’t use nearly that fancy tools. I only use Visio for drawing out the designs but I certainly don’t have access to a CNC machine. I have to borrow use of a lathe. Other than that I use mostly a drill press and sanders. Thanks for the nice comments but as JW pointed out this is a very complicated project so it may take a while to finish.
Well Doug, you have even more admiration from me – I’ve been using the cool tools since I’ve had access to them and would have thought you had some access to them given your job. Even more power to you doing all that stuff manually. As John said, you really know how to raise the bar for everyone. I can’t wait to see this project fly.
