Project Description

I'm looking for someone to help me design a hot air balloon. I have built several balloons already, but I want to build a "special" shape balloon. I would like to build a balloon in a shape of a polyherda.

I'll first want to build a small model balloon with the gross lift of 80lbs, then if it works out I'll build a large one to fly in.

My main concerns are safety and that the balloon will maintain it's shape. Some special shape balloons use a series of baffles and ropes to help aid in holding its shape. From what I understand SOLIDWORKS has the ability to simulate such forces. (Simulation package)

Is this something you would be interested in doing? This is more of a personal project than a job, so we are not pressed for time.

This webpage will show you an example of a special shape balloon and the baffles needed to hold it's shape.
