622’s pilot and the power of parametric CAD

I just finished drawing 622’s pilot.  Actually, it is 623’s pilot as I don’t have any photograph showing 622 after she lost her link and pin.  I think it’s a pretty good match to the photo.


Perhaps the angle needs to be a little more acute. But here’s the thing: five minutes ago, it looked like this:

To fix it, I returned to the sketch that made the pilot frame and changed one number – the width of the coupler pocket side.  Then OnShape took care of shifting all the staves around so they filled the space equally.  I’m loving OnShape!
