Can you guess what this prototype will be?

HINT: You can watch the stars inside.

The LJ Design & Manufacturing engineering team is currently working on a planetarium project! The photo shows the prototype of the planetarium. The planetarium will be used in a museum and we will manufacture multiple units in a variety of sizes.

The final product will be manufactured with a white fabric on the outside and black on the inside for easy star gazing. The inside surface will be an 18-foot diameter half sphere.

We developed this prototype by using a combination of real-world frame measurements, Solidworks models and Draftsight for flat pattern modification in order to cut these pieces on our Pathfinder.
