Description
STOL, 1.5 Passengers. More engine(s) than plane. This is a mix of surface and t-spline bodies converted to BREP and some combine operations to better integrate the engines into the design. Gave me a chance to learn & use more patterns as well as experiment with some upcoming material workflows.
Comments

Great looking project. Can you help me with a VTOL of mine?

Hi Avihoo - Thank you - It is 100% intuitive / 0% wind-tunnel :) I did export the model to X-Plane and the results there showed that it has a inverted / unfortunate glide angle (for every foot forward it loses 20feet in a un-powered glide).. not a plane to lose a engine in!

Thanks Jeremiah - Watching how long it is taking Honda to certify their "light" jet should dissuade all but the most intrepid entrepreneurs ;)

Looking nice... is this an intuitive piece of work or does the shape actually derive from real aerodynamic analysis?

very complexed and could be turned in to a working product. just a thought.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what you come up with - My first thought when I saw your Microscope rendering was "how did he get the update early?" :)

Man, I am gonna all over that! Looking at the blog it seems there is a whole bunch of stuff to get excited about.

Hi Gary - It is indeed part of a "Rendering Workspace" integrated with the next Fusion 360 release (aka the "May Update"). Prabakar has a good blog post outlining this and other improvements / new features that we look forward to having in the hands of customers soon. Of all the updates, Materials (rendering fidelity and workflow) is one I will be quite excited to see outcomes and suggestions on our direction there.

Hey Nathan,

I noticed in the screencap closeup of the engine there is a render button along with what look like lighting and material buttons, is that in your Fusion or another program?

Thanks Kingson & Keqing! Yeah - Rolls Royce felt right :)

Nice color!
