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 taken from the analog world and put into the digital world as we completely digitized the vehicle.  The resulting point cloud can be used to perform CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics), FEA (Finite Element Analysis) and the designing and machining of details and assemblies.  The entire fuselage has been captured in the computer within 0.002 inch.
