A-10C part reverse engineering


Recommended Posts

Hi guys


I am looking for an article stating that some of the original blueprints were lost, and to produce new wing part for the A 10 they needed to use 3d scans for the process of reverse engineering


Does anyone have the link perhaps ?

Quote from Boeing. Perhaps this is what you were thinking about.


Using 3-D modeling provided the baseline engineering foundation for the A-10 Wing Replacement program.




Hope that sheds light on all this.

well not so unlikely


Those parts which I was thinking about were not directly produced by the main manufacturer but another small contractor working for the main manufacturer. The A10 service time limit has been several time extended and some of those contractors were not expecting it or do not exists anymore IIRC
