FireSat Spacecraft Parts (SolidEdge)

Hey All,

For those of you who own Spacecraft Structures & Mechanisms (Sarafin, T), I have created initial models (in SolidEdge) for the equipment list for the FireSat example illustrated in the book (pages 484/485)

I have also included a metric converted version of the equipment list in Excel.

NOT included are correct densities / material properties.  To replicate the masses of the components in the book, I made the models with the correct dimensions, but “made up” densities to calculate the correct mass. Modelling the material is for you to decide.   Please feel free to use / change the parts for your own needs – these are purely an initial “start” to get an idea for concept configuration analysis and I am sharing it to save you several hours of modelling so you can get straight into configuration studies!

Any questions feel free  to leave a message!  Download links are below, as well as the referenced book by Thomas Sarafin, available on Amazon.
