3D Airplane Wing

What did you make?

A 3D model of an airplane wing using CAD software.

Why did you make it?

I made the model for a senior capstone project which looked at how to make airplane wings more efficient.

What did you learn while making it that might be useful to others?

  • Revise, revise, revise.
  • Quick pro types are the future. The 3D printer allows me to go back and remake today instead of waiting as long as a year (common in older pro types).


Here are a few pictures of the printing process:
