Giles 200: Titan IO-375 Engine Scanning – Part 2
I’m still working at making a nice engine model of the IO-375 for the Giles 200 project, and so I went down to the airport this morning to continue scanning. I decided to take Jarrod’s advice from the comments on my first post, and break the scanning into two parts – a lower res scan for the case, sump and valve covers, and a higher res scan for the fins. I only had about an hour available, so I worked on getting the lower res parts. Now that I’ve got a really good feel for how to use the unit, I have to say doing this was really fun. The idea will be to assemble the low and high res parts together in Rhino, once I have all of them scanned. This seems to be the best way to approach the problem, as it keeps the file size in VXelements from getting too big. Anyway, here’s a few screen shots:
It will probably take me another hour or so to get the rest of the low res surfaces, then it’s on to those pesky cooling fins!
