Drawings and visualisation

The H-1 general assembly can be viewed using AutoCAD/AutoDesk Design Review. A free download of AutoDesk Design Review [Windows only] is available. This download is over 100MB, so be prepared to wait; however the drawing files themselves are quite small (~1MB).

The H-1 general assembly drawing for viewing (and marking up) in Design Review is available here: H1 without plasma. Note that you should save the file locally if you want to modify it, add mark up or comments etc.
