When the North American Eagle® was built it was done on drafting tables with engineers utilizing slide rules. Using Blue Light Scanners from Capture 3D, the Eagle has been completely digitized. The resulting point cloud has been utilized to perform CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics), FEA (Finite Element Analysis) and the designing and machining of details. The entire fuselage has been captured in the computer within 0.002 inch.
