Icarus uses CATIA to design parts and calculate weights, center of gravity, and inertias of the vehicle.  These data are combined with CFD data and sent to Wallops Island for review.  On the left are some of the 2D drawings created of Icarus.  Below are images from CATIA of the virtual Icarus model, showing the level of modeling detail.
