Hi Fred,

I would have two questions regarding your WB.

1) What is the intent of the property "Rib Profil" which i circled in the attached Picture?
I can change the profile by typing in a new number in the section "Naca Profil".
Is Rib Profil only necessary if I want to use a DAT file?

question ribprofile.JPG

2) Is it possible to select and/or attach the rib geometry to a vertex?
When I create a rib it just appears at a random point and I didn't find a way to set the origin during creation.
It would be helpful if I could fix the leading edge of the rib to a parametric vertex.

BR,
Will
