This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.


VPACC Virtual Public Aerospace Concept is looking for help with its 3D modeling team.

VPACC, Inc., is a Washington,DC-based non-profit (with some team members located remotely). Our mission is to pioneer an entertainment-centric long-term strategy to engage the public in scientific literacy and STEAM education, through the lens of space exploration. VPACC plans to engineer sets of full motion and static spaceflight simulators to operate in unison, allowing us to create excitement and mission architecture that can be shaped into a set of long term informal entertainment and educational programs.

Part of this enterprise is the development of 3D model vehicles used in the intended simulation. These model vehicles are designed and developed as realistic representations of future technology. Horizontal take-off single-stage-to-orbit vehicles and beyond low earth orbit exploration.

Volunteers need to be capable of modeling in 3D CAD programs especially 3DMax and preferably have some basic knowledge about modeling in game engines. Must also be a self-starter who is able to work remotely with good written communication skills with other team members.

You would be working with other team members on our projects. The models are developed and include a number of detailed parts so you will be continuing the work and contributing to a team project. Models include:

Model Aircraft, runway to orbit lifting body

Model space vehicles, in orbit and beyond LEO capable vehicles

Model simulators, 3D models representing flight simulators and static simulators.

Model cockpits, 3D modeling the simulated cockpits.

Model flight suit parts, helping design and model parts of a near future flight suit concept.

Design and direction will be driven by VPACC admin and volunteer experts with real world experience and backgrounds in aerospace industry, both aviation and space, in cooperation with modeling team.
