Rockets being made in KOMPAS-3D: ASCON and Lin Industrial continue cooperation
Russian companies ASCON and Lin Industrial agreed to continue their cooperation. ASCON provided the Skolkovo startup with a 3D modeling system KOMPAS-3D software license for 2016, including various additional applications, and LOTSMAN:KB for automation of engineering management and design documentation release management.
The companies signed their first contract in August 2015 at MAKS airshow, and half a year later, in January 2016 recognized the cooperation successful.
KOMPAS-3D was used by Lin Industrial for 3D model creation and drawings of test rockets, auxiliary equipment and advanced projects, and for rapid prototyping as well — 3D models of parts are created in KOMPAS-3D, converted into STL format and 3D printed.
Moon Seven is a project of Russian lunar base utilizing available launch vehicles, spacecraft and technologies. Some proposals from Moon Seven have been included in the Federal Space Program for 2016–2025.
Sketches of the lunar base were made in KOMPAS, becoming the basis of 3D models for rendered static images and videos. The results of Moon Seven development were included in the presentation which was distributed in printed form at MAKS 2015 among prospective investors and customers. The presentation features both rendered images and original drawings.
SVZ-1 test rocket is designed for the development of technologies for supersonic test rocket. General SVZ-1 drawing was made in KOMPAS-3D.
Subsonic test rocket (flying testbed)
Different versions of rocket for subsonic testing of prototype of the control system for space launch vehicle (flying testbed) made five flights in 2015.
End frame and grid fins (3D model)
Drawings of parts were made in KOMPAS-3D, then converted into STL format and sent to 3D printer.
