Design & Drawing Office
The VKI design and drawing office plays an important role in providing the three VKI departments with the wind tunnel models, experimental setups, facility modifications and developments that they need for training and research. The drawing office also performs all drawing updates related to building maintenance and security. It also prepares figures and charts for technical reports, publications and displays of scientific material.
The office is fully equipped for Computer Aided Design (CAD). The following software, periodically updated, are used: AUTOCAD Mechanical 2018, for 2D drawings and Inventor Professional 2018 for 3D drawings, all two from Autodesk. CATIA V5R21 from Dassault Systèmes.
DXF, IGES, STEP and ACIS translators, are available for exchange of drawing files with other CAD software packages.
