I decided to have scale wing looking so new wing is being done.. will be finished by tomorrow....

Resin to build molds will be ordered next week, should come within 1 month.

I am back!

I am still looking for a job but also I am on holidays from 14th onwards!

as a consequence, I will be able to give a little progress on the project...

I have some progress on rudders and wings....

the body 3d design for the mold making is almost ready for cutting...

If everything goes ok I should have stab, rudders, wings ready for scale detailing and body stated by 31st dec 05...
after that, I will have to stop and really get a job...

Wait a minute. 11/13 you're very busy at work. Now on 12/9 you are looking for a job? Did we miss something? Hope this doesn't mean you are unemployed. []

Do you get to take the CAD program and/or data with you? Or do you lose the use of it?

If I may ask, do you work in Engineering or Drafting/CAD or other field?

little progress on the plane but now I am stopping the job on that plane due to its cost and will continue it later (1 or 2 years).

in the meantime, I am building a sailplane...
progress will be shown on the website soon!

hi guys....

after a while, I am now working again on the raptor (in the same time as finishing my big sailplane).

I have now learn how to do some 3d shape in catia and also do directly the 3d machining from it also (even if I still need lot of work to be good).

As I have decided to restart this project to improve it, I am now redesigning the body...after lots of efforts, bottom looks good and I will add more details soon.

are you restarting this project because you can't import to Catia or you have a better idea to make it? You're so close to finishing the last one.

actually,

I have found a better way to make it and also there was some mistakes in the design. now it will be closer to the real one and also the construction should be more accurate.
It has nothing to do with catia work done before.

the only thing is that now I know how to model fully 3d in catia, not only formers, and also I know how to prepare machining from there (at least the basis).

I am thinking of spending quite some time on the 3d in order to get the best possible result at the end.
