Air Plane Design Workbench - discussion thread

Postby a179308 » Wed Aug 28, 2019 7:48 pm

Hello,
I've have started a Air Plane Design Workbench :https://github.com/FredsFactory/FreeCAD_AirPlaneDesign . Available to install in the addon manager, Air Plane Design Workbench V0.1 and V0.2 can create a wings based on panel and profil.
Please don't use the V0.1 it was a first draft, based on sheet with which I designed the wing of my ASK13 (https://fredsfactory.fr).
The approach on the V0.2 is completely different and integrate parametric objects based on a dedicated UI.
You can use this discussion thread to interact with me.
Hoping this can be of some utility for FC users.

Fred

Awesome. Can you make a short video on how you use it ?

Does this allow to specify wing planform, airfoil sections, taper, dihedral ... and get the contour of the ribs at any location ? And then, may-be, give the GRBL file to cut the ribs ? And does this allow to calculate the GRBL path for a 4-axis foam-cutter ?

I'd be VERY interested in this, and also in helping to improve it.
try the Assembly4 workbench for FreCAD v0.19
install with Tools > Addon Manager > Assembly4 — simple tutorial here

Hello,
It's my goal :D
At this stage you can create a parametric rib based on dat file. You can also create a wing composed by panels, each panel can be oriented.

To produce a GCODE you can use the path workbench, but you will limited to produce Gcode in 2.5D
Next step is to cute all ribs, and spend some time to translate the UX and produce a short video.

if you want to contribute do not hesitate ...

will it take NACA profiles
as the Python addon for Linuxcnc XYUV Gcode does

Good idea I will analyse the code.

Hello,
thanks for you suggestion. I integrate a NACA 4 and 5 digits in the workbench.

After creation you can change the NACA profil/Number of points and choord or switch to a DAT file.
