Software requirements

windkit is build with realthunder's FreeCAD fork : FreeCAD_assembly3 2020.08.18. To modify the model we recommend the same or even newer versions. For the assembly process we've been using the assembly workbench Assembly3. The workbench is bundled in the fork mentioned before, no addition installation are needed. In addition we use the Fasteners WB V0.3.32 03 Sep 2020 for fasteners groups, this workbench needs to be installed separatly via the Addon-Manager in Freecad.

Assembly overview

The master assembly file is called MainAssembly.windkit.FCStd. All sub-assemblies are saved in different folders. The sub-assemblies are shown in the following image below. The BOM is also structured the way the Cad is organised.

Prototype

Beginning of 2021 a prototype has been built in a workshop. The following picture shows all parts of the windkit prototype before assembly.

The next step is to bring the turbine to the field for testing!
