From CAD to Reality – SCINTILLA

Scintilla is Latin for “spark”. Scintilla represents the original idea that has sparked our all interest in project IGNIS and that has brought us to where we are at now.

This week the mechanics and electronics teams are working together on assembling SCINTILLA, our final prototype. The base structure consists of Wood and laser sintered plastic. The wings are made of wooden ribs held together by carbon rods. The rods connect to the body and transfer the lift of the wings and motors. The first iteration of wings will be covered with foam boards while the final iteration will be made out of carbon. The body is enclosed by a 3d printed hull.
