How to close a wing tip

By Kim Johnson on 24 May 21:28 5 answers 11 comments

Hey guys, I'm having troubles finding a command to close the tip of a wing (wing/vertical tail/horizontal stabilizer, same method). I have tried commands in surface and part design but haven't anything yet and the internet didn't give a solution.

Basically what I want to do is connect 3 curves (left contour, right contour and a drawn outer contour) that are tangential to the existing wing part, such that a nice enclosed tip is created.

I have added some pictures to give a better feeling and understanding of it, together with a sample wing tip. This is the kind of wing tip I wish to create. (source: http://aerospaceengineeringblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/Airplane-Wing-Part-Diagram-Terminology.png)

Is there any good soul that could help me out?

Eternal thanks for the person that could help me with this.

    I think i found a solution. you have to split the curves, then use multi-section command and fill with tangency. Finally check the tangency continuity using a join with tangency
