Giles G-200: Cowling Design Progress

Well, I suppose this post is going to wrap things up for the year.  I’ve spent some time this week working on various projects, and also upgrading our office space (more on that in a week or so), but it feels good to be finishing out the last work day of the year making some serious progress on the Giles G-200 cowling.  Right now the inlets are just kinda half way there – mostly concentrating on fitting the main cowling body to the engine and getting it setup for final shaping.  Things should proceed quickly from here on out – so much nicer to have the laser scan data to work with on this project.  Happy New Year to all of you!

  1. That already looks so much better than the factory version.

    Your work is so clean and sexy. I look forward to your next post.

    I was wondering what your feeling were in regards to the recent acquisition of T-Splines by Autodesk?

    • Thanks Mike!

      As for T-Splines and Autodesk…….I think it’s too soon to see how this is all going to shake out. Obviously I really love T-Splines for Rhino, and have a ton invested in the combination of the two, and so life without T-Splines for Rhino would be painful, at least in the short term. All indicators seem to point to the fact that some sort of deal for the Rhino implementation for T-Splines is in the works, but certainly the holidays have really slowed things down. My fingers are crossed that in the next week or two, more concrete plans will be forthcoming. However, as a backup, I’ve been looking at Modo, just in case…..
