New features in SpaceCAD model rocket design software
The new version of SpaceCAD offers many improvements that you can see instantly when you run it the first time. You'll be delighted, so don't wait and check it out now!
Integrated Flight Analysis
The flight prediction display has been updated. SpaceCAD 6 computes the full flight, including recovery.
See all flight results at a glance, like maximum height and the flight events. Check the log to compare different configurations.
Change your rocket's configuration directly from the flight prediction display, like choosing a different parachute.
SpaceCAD computes your rocket's drift for different wind speeds, allows you to easily export the flight data and find the real coefficient of drag (cd).
New Recovery Device
Parachute and Streamer
The new recovery device allows you to add parachutes and streamers to your design. It comes complete with database support and is the base for the integrated flight prediction.
Your rocket can have multiple recovery systems: Once your rocket reaches apogee, a small drogue parachute is ejected. This slows the rocket down, but makes sure it does not drift too far away. Once it reaches 25 meters, a huge main parachute is ejected to slow it down for the final descent.
We have worked on a lot of things to make SpaceCAD 6 easier and more fun to use. From an updated and streamlined user interface, to the new online help, many things have been improved.
