Aircraft bodywork 3D parametric CAD model

Working for a client who provides solutions for the aircraft maintenance industry including component repair & overhaul, piece part manufacture and aircraft fuel tank repair, BMS originated 3D scan data and converted this into a 3D parametric CAD model of this supplied aircraft landing gear door.  Quality checks and a verification report was completed and the files were issued to the client in .step .xt and native SolidWorks format.

The project brief:

“We have an Aircraft landing gear door which we need to manufacture to the same dimensions as in-service doors. Would you be able to create a 3D CAD drawing to model the outer skin of the door we have?”
