Make a Concept Fighter Jet Using Audodesk 123D Design

I decided to try making a concept jet fighter. The idea was to explore how to make a few mobile parts (in this case, the cockpit and the landing gear) already assambled to the 3D printed object. In case of failure of the mobile parts, the result had to be awesome enough for justifying the printing.

I have to be honest: the final result didn’t fulfill my expectatives. I think the jet is good but not awesome. But It was a very educational experience.

I have to admit something: at least, it’s a cool pen top!

NOTES: I used the 123D Design 64bits for PC, version 1.1.41. My laptop is a Samsung with Intel Core i3-2370M 2.40GHz  processor, 4,00 GB RAM and Windows 7 Home Basic. The 3D printer is an Objet.

This is my attempt to send a radio controlled airplane to the edge of space using a weather ballon, and then via a live video feed pilot it back down again.
