Ok, but I meant there is factory alignment points in seams. If and when you cut the cell there is none but you can of course mark some by yourself. Just be precise.klimm wrote: No problem about marking , I'm used to this from sleeping bags.
Yes, basic things can be done quite easily with it.klimm wrote: Now, I started to play a bit into SP and looks relatively intuitive.
That is ok, there is actually quite a lot leeway there because foil kite cells hide small errors.klimm wrote: I just aproximated the shape as I can't precisely determine the canopy curvature.
? You can adjust canopy curve and plan shape in SP very freely, also manually.klimm wrote: While the tip is curved and PS only accepts straight for this kite, what chord should I give?
But middle cells are much bigger than cells at tips. Is difference really that small? Hard to believe.klimm wrote:Cells are wider towards center(1-2 cm)
I don't know how to do it either but it is not necessity. Designs I've presented here are just screen shots.klimm wrote: Sorry, I am not able to attach the .sle file as it is not an acceptable format for the forum it says?
Ok, 37 cells it is. Here is new design from these values.klimm wrote: we will have 37 cells. I started the project in SP with that count to train a bit with the bridle
I see the SP counts as you propose; agreed
As I was able to measure the chord is 2.45m at cell 18 and 1/2.
The flat span would be 7m and projected would be 5m
the tip-1=38cm 2=62 3=85
But middle cells are much bigger than cells at tips. Is difference really that small? Hard to believe.
