    Flying Bike Mark 3

    Comparing a mini max and a Cassutt racer, is like saying an apple is almost like an orange because they both grew on a tree.

    Nope, decided it was not worth anything more than a Hello!

    Aerofoil layout

    Always enjoy how quickly things get added to, adjusted and turned into another direction. If the question was, similar to this- " how does one make a simple wing profile, that has a 54" cord line, into a 60" cord line profile" That answer was one of the very first ones, with simple...

    I have no idea what your saying or suggesting, with the words "mutually exclusive" if you care to elaborate, I will try to reply.

    Fusion 360 experts: Developable loft?

    Sounds like you have a program that does what you want it to, but I may have missed, why your trying to make another program do the same or similar thing? I may have missed, why your wanting to do what your satisfied with already, in another program? I may have over simplified your questions...

    Fusion 360 experts: Developable loft?

    Hummm, I am not sure what you don't want, vs what you do want. I am saying that ANYWHERE in this length of loft, would there be a identical shape, or perhaps a arc segment corner. If that is what you don't want, then I am not sure what you do want.. As when I first imagined what you were...

    Fusion 360 experts: Developable loft?

    I just did a quick check of extreme shapes with a loft between them, and perhaps do not understand what "The “developable” constraint is that the lofted surface should have zero compound curvature" as my loft worked well, and if I were to slice a cross section, anywhere in this length, I would...

    Fusion 360 experts: Developable loft?

    That is how I would do it as well, I don't ever re-call this causing a problem. In fact, now that I say that I think I could go from a square to a circle 10 foot apart (extreme case)

    EAA No Longer Has Free SolidWorks

    New users, this is true on so many levels. but I reiterate the U tube comment, just about any "CAD system" has a work-around posted on Youtube, between that, and designing parts that are make-able, really puts into perspective your final goal. One part at a time, drawn right, is worth 100's of...

    Fusion 360 experts: Developable loft?

    addaon, I am trying to develop thoughts on your quest for this "developed loft", and if I am reading right, your wanting to loft between a root wing profile (R) and a wing tip profile (T) And I don't mean the actual wing tip, just the last profile before the wing tip starts If this is the...

    I guess no one has ever used or heard of this company? no opinions are rare these days.. ;-)

    Steel parts finishing

    Having painted many frames, with most of the listed above products, with great results, I would be one of the first to say, most GOOD products, applied correctly work well. This "applied correctly" part is key. But most of you know that. But, and there always seems to be a "but" I can't get...

    Can you ID this plane?

    Was some actually carrying the wings as pictured in the first photo? I can't imagine on a flat ribbed floor, would produce good end results? EVEN 2-10 miles... there is a lot of things wrong in that photo, but perhaps it was done, just to show that it would fit (kinda) on a trailer.
