Did anyone manage to save an STL free??
Hi fluidity.

I saved it with .3dm and then converted it to .stl, because the option to save to stl was not enabled

best regards

Absolutely! All you need to do to access the foil import + export features is create a free account. I've enjoyed your thread and think WingHopper is a perfect compliment to your software!

from https://www.winghopper.com/faq:

Import foil section .dat files by changing their file extension from .dat to .txt. WingHopper wings are modelled with 3 sections per wing, for the root, midspan, and tip locations. This allows for sections to be optimized for the local flow patterns.

Would love to look at ways to combine forces + collaborate if you're interested :D
hi Zach,congratulations for the initiative I have not yet worked with the winghopper I just touched some parameters I was already used to this system, because here in the kiteforum there is a similar to karoro only for kites design. I miss a button undoing each modification.

in the download options only the .3dm and .xml format are enabled?

I tried to export an .xml file to xlfr5 and I couldn't find it to enter xlfr5.

there is some option in the winghopper to change the direction of the wing in front view, but in parts. And not entirely from the wing tip to the wing tip?

Good stuff, I'll check it out!

For a collab. I'd be keen. I'm planning / busy moving my program out of excel, to make it easier to use as a website interface for example. Will give a shout when it's all done.
