Hello everyone, I'm working on a CAD model of the VIIc. I'm creating this thread to have a central place that I can post updates and ask questions.

General Information


TBD






Technical Drawings & Reference Material


This is a list of useful items and websites that contain either dimensions or technical drawings

Issues


Pressure Hull
1. Bulb Tee stiffening rings: I've spent hours looking for a cross section of a bulb tee as described in the technical reports. Not completely sure what geometry dimensions are referring to on drawing (see attached)
2. size of plates used for skin and standard plating pattern
3. Scarfing thick to thin joints

Propeller
1. Planrolle only gives half of the information needed to model the correct profiles. As a substitute, a NACA profile could be used until correct is found.
2. Planrolle only gives assembly drawing

Drawings
Aside from the Planrolle there's not much out there available to me without cost or travelling. Any help with acquiring or scanning plans would be greatly helpful.

Status Update. Also, why were the Germans using Standard Tap sizes? 1/2 and 7/8?

Interesting project.
I see that you're going quite deep on the detail level.
The first parts look great.

Which program are you using for this project?

I'm afraid I can't help you concerning your request in your first post. I only have the "Vom Original zum Modell" drawings...

Keep us posted.

Hi DerXL,


I'm using SolidWorks and MatLab.
