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 saw you're in Part workbench. Go to GSD, joint all the curves together (insure there are in tangents at least) and the try to use fill
Hi friend, do you have a copy of this 3D model? Try to send us a copy of this, to help you,
Thanks so much,
Have a good day,
Hi Hugo! I have added a model with the same situation. It would be great if you could help me out! Thanks a lot and I wish you a great day as well.
its me again, friend!!! BINGOOOO!!! to this issue!!
I attach you the image, to close your profile,
let me take me some minutes to writte the procedure, step by step to close your surface.
Have a good day,
Here I am again! I have added the file (called 'test wing tip') with the actual airfoil I'm using for my university's project. The airfoil has a more complex shape.
I would appreciate it a lot if you can try to make a wing tip out of this! For the side curve, I used a connecting curve with tangency 0.7 and 0.3, connecting the airfoil front and back.
Thank you for your help already Hugo!
That picture looks sweet! Thank you so much for helping me out, I'm looking forward to your instructions!
You have a good day too and thank you again!
Hey Hugo, how exactly did you use the extruded surfaces with the blend command? What did you use for the first curve/support and second curve/support? Thank you in advance!
Please let me know, if you my picture can help you, and you made the model, as you want.
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
Hey Mihail! That picture looks good! Im gonna try it now and let you know if it worked for me! Thanks a lot for your help!
I have tried your method and it worked for the upper part! However for the lower part it didn't work. I tried your method with the airfoil I'm using for my university project, which is a complex-shape airfoil.
If you have time for it, it would be great if you could try the same with this airfoil (see file 'wing tip test'). For the side curve, I used a connecting curve with tangency 0.7 and 0.3, connecting the front and back of the airfoil.
I hope you succeed and thanks in advance!
