3D simulation of the manufacture process of a RC prototype

This 3D technical animation was a project to design the structure and iterate a few times without the actual manufacture of the prototype.

The geometry of the Trasgo aircraft required a different structure than conventional ones. I wanted to build a radio-controlled prototype myself using balsa wood as a starting point. I started with some drawings and models but I ended up doing a whole simulation to figure out the assembly and the steps that I was to follow.

Using this model and animation as a validation for the assembly I started the detailed design and build of the wing.

The total wing span was 1.5 meters. When I moved out because of a new job, I didn't have enough space and the manufacture stopped.
