Test Rocket - Fin Machining

posted Jun 6, 2011, 10:48 PM by John Alcorn
To complete a full systems test, the CanSat team plans to due an on-site dress rehearsal of the competition. We've developed a 104 inch carbon fiber rocket, the motor has been purchased, and the fins are being machined.

Below is the CAD part in the Surfcam application. A simulation of the path the end mill will take gives us a good idea of what to look for when the actual machining is happening.
