Hello! My name is Katie, and I am studying Aerospace Engineering at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. I designed a Vergeltungswaffe 2, commonly known as the V2 rocket, using Solid Edge.
I started by building the outside of the rocket first and then worked my way inwards. That way, when I was building the assembly, I would automatically know if the parts were too big and could adjust immediately to save time. After building the exterior of the rocket, I designed the combustion chamber which I considered the most complex part. All my other parts were designed around the combustion chamber.
