    new sloper

    Post by Robert Piechulski on Thu May 20, 2010 7:10 pm

    Decided to build new sloping beast

    It's a long way as I learn how to use CAD - but I have the main idea about the fuss.
    Will be rounded also - but still looking for the right button (one of few milions of'em Twisted Evil ) to do it...
    here is a picture of it .


    Will keep you updated if anyone's interested Smile

    Euuurgh, TurboCAD. Do yourself a favour, and beg/borrow/steal a copy of SolidWorks. Much easier to learn (and much more useful too!).....

    Andy

    Oh, and the tool you need for rounding corners off, is called a "fillet" tool Wink

    Little update
    I found some time so I did some more work on it.



    It's not rounded yet - it's the tricky light Wink
    Airfoil used - MH45 - but it's just temporarly - will go possibly for pw51 near the fuss and then into MH60 at the ends - will know for sure when I go throu all thoose fancy data airfoil calculators .
