Solid Edge. Design better.
Oxford, MI, June 30, 2014 – On June 9th, Commander Michael R. Wohnhaas, who will be the first commanding officer of the USS DETROIT (LCS 7), visited CAM Logic at COBO Center during their set up for the RAPID Show (an additive manufacturing and 3D technologies exposition). While visiting, the owner of CAM Logic, Jim Carlisle, presented CDR Wohnhaas with a 3D printed scaled model of the Spirit of Detroit which was created with the data collected by the CAM Logic team on May 8th when they took a 3D scan of the 26 foot statue.
A larger model will be printed and dedicated to the ship at its launching and christening ceremony this fall in Marinette, WI where the ship is currently being constructed. This figure is expected to be placed in a special display case in the ship’s corridor.
“We are excited to be donating a piece that so significantly represents the City of Detroit. It’s a symbol of Detroit’s talents, heart, tenacity, resurgence, passion and faith in our city. As it does for the people of the city, the Spirit will provide a constant reminder to the crew that the ship is as tough and agile as the city it’s named for”, said Leah Mack, Marketing Manager.
The USS Detroit will be a Freedom class littoral combat ship, a relatively small surface vessel intended for operations close to shore. It is designed as a fast, agile warship which will support a wide variety of missions, including anti-submarine, surface and mine countermeasure warfare, along with shipping lane protection and humanitarian aid. It will be 378 feet long, have a top speed of 40 knots (approximately 46 mph), include a helicopter flight deck and travel over 4,000 nautical miles at cruise speed.
A commissioning ceremony is anticipated to be held at Port Detroit in 2016 on the ship’s route to her homeport of San Diego. This stopover will give Detroiters an opportunity to show their support for the namesake ship and the many men and women who will carry the spirit of Detroit with them through the ship’s every mission.
