Strange - I looked at the link with another browser where I was not logged on and I could still see it. Maybe I was still messing with the gallery at the time.
I just clicked on your link and it came up fine. Drawings look good. Are you planning to draw some closeups of assemblies, like controls, ailerons, landing gear, etc?
Actually I did pull that but found the design difficult to modify because of the format. Working with it but slow going. I may just use it as a reference and redraw it in fusion 360 format.
I came across that grabcad one also, and hacked together the following (see screenshot). It was never intended to be accurate, but only a "representative visual mass" and so has a few holes...it is a difficult model to modify. If you'd like me to post it here in STEP format, let me know, I'd be happy to do so. If someone had some really good closeup photos of the modifications to the head area, I might could model those up and contribute it here to the forums, but its difficult scouring the internet for the right reference photos. -Tom Kyler
So over my head but really enjoying this thread!
Pete, did you know you can down load for free, the student premium version of SolidWorks from the EAA website. Just by being a member of EAA.Perhaps one of the greatest benie's of being a member. By doing so, you quickly can gain knowledge about the many different formats of files being talked about here. While it may take awhile to be proficient in any CAD program, it does not take long to understand the various file formats. I have to warn all though- once you enter the world of CAD drawing, you will hardly ever look at a shape, no matter if it ranges from a chair to a aircraft, the same again. If not from the redesign aspect, from the actual "how it was made" side of things.I am a teacher/educator at SolidWorks University at EAA and every year we get 40-50 folks each day started down this path at Airventure. It is a fun thing to see them create parts for the very first time.A link that should get you in the right direction is https://www.eaa.org/eaa/eaa-membership/eaa-member-benefits/solidworks-resource-center/solidworks-universityenjoy!Scott
I would love to have a copy of your step file - Fusion 360 does not usually have any issues with that.
