    Boeing 747 cockpit section 3D model

    Howdoo.

    Just a note to let you know I have uploaded revision 1 of my 3D 747 cockpit shell here.

    http://www.mycockpit.org/forums/down...do=file&id=145

    As usual its a long way from being finished but i thought I would share with you all.

    The idea is that it will be constructed the tried and tested (and quite frankly excellent) ivar hestnes method

    It is as close to the real dimentions as possible, however please dont order a new windshield for a real 747 based on these drawing
    But its ideal for planning your sim layout and trying to figure out "will it fit in the garage!"

    The files are currently in .STL format, i can export to several different formats if required, if you do require a different format please PM me

    But most of all enjoy!!

    Phil

    Cheers for the great replys.

    Ivar, you are correct, 3D design is my day job, also if you dont mind me asking, on your shell construction what spacing did you use between the vertical and horizontal spars?

    I have to be honest, its the single most difficult thing ive had to draw, basically its just a lofted protrution following 3 profile guide lines, its not 100% perfect yet, I know the roof line has a little less of a radius versus the true part.

    I have allready been asked to produce an 2D autocad drawing of this aswell, give me some time and i will upload that when I can.

    If I get time i will have a go at a 737NG aswell, But I allready know that will be much harder than a 747.

    But because of the deal falling through on a new home for my sim, I cant start building yet, so I am designing everything in 3D to start with, every part - should be fun.

    Regards

    Phil

    Can you tell me the overall height and width of this shell? I am building the cad plans of my soon to be built detached sim room and even though I am not building the 747 I am using you great shell as a stand in.

    Sure,

    The height is 2025mm, the width is 3465mm and the length from front to back is 2488mm.

    I should upload a 2D autocad version of this really.

    P.S. Working on a 737-NG nose section at the moment

    Its great! We are doing the same thing. I want to mention that just a shell is not what we need. The real 737 hull is constructed from stringers and base stations (pls see pics attached). Each base station has its number that corresponds to the distance from nose of the aircraft in inches. The position of the base stations is important for simbuilders because all the rest if the elements like control column shaft, pedals shaft, etc...are mounted on the base stations and floor ribs. I am working on it, rebuilding the whole picture in one drawing. Its not an easy task - most of the measurements from the web are inaccurate and a lot of intellegence needed to put it all together finding geometrical constraints. The most complicated part is windows section. On 737 windows are flat, but its turned in all directions in vertical and horisontal planes. This is what I stuck with at the moment.

    P.S. Nice exercise - ple take a front window dimentions that are widely available in the net. And try to put them together in the CAD tool - and it will not work
    P.P.S. I would recommend you to add some more construction elements - it will make a shell solid. And windows mounting will be easier. If you take a look on any opening in the skin of fuselage - there are solid ribs surrounding the opening to fix the skin to the hull.

    When I put together my shell, I also got trouble with the windows. But only with the front windows.

    I had to make each front window about 8cm more wide. Then it worked fine. But I did not have any autocad-drawing.

    Only trial and failure.
