Electronics bay modeling

Modeling electronics isn’t one of the core competencies of Solidworks, however it is quite handy for laying out the positions of components in an assembly to make sure that everything is going to fit in the space available.

That has been the objective of modeling the electronics bay of the next big Sugar Shot rocket. While the propellant guys are working to tame the rocket propellant, the electronics team is working to get all of the desired flight data recorders and event triggers working together.

Here are a couple renders of the “e-bay” as it stands now. Click for 2000×10000 pixel images.
