3D Model – Tri-Plane Wing Strut

Posted
Wing profile

3D model – Tri-Plane Wing Strut for a 1916 Sopwith tri-plane. Three different profiles were modeled using Autodesk Inventor, for later CNC machining and use in restoring the vintage tri-plane. These 3D models were actually quite complex with the profiles being originally designed and calculated using ‘old school’ pre-computer days methods, luckily the client was able to obtain the original drawings so Draft and Model was able to reproduce the exact 3D profiles. File types .stl were provided to the client for direct machining.
