Developer's Description

Wing Helper is a state of the art parametric 3D CAD program for design of RC airplanes. Wing Helper provides a large set of powerful yet easy to use tools and functions. In the current version 1.2.3, Wing Helper supports the definition of the main wing. In future releases, we will be adding support for empennage, fuselage, electronics.

Traditional parametric CAD programs force the user to enter huge amounts of data without much (if any) visual control. On the other hand, CAD programs such as AutoCAD or Blender are based on a pure graphical manipulation of data. This approach allows a huge degree of freedom (you can draw anything, from the screw to the space ship), but it also imposes a very steep learning curve on the user.

Wing Helper allows you to define your construction by specifying the numerical data (parametric approach), while at the same time representing the effects of your changes visually in a "live view" window. Wing Helper is not a general purpose CAD program, it concentrates on a single task, and makes this task as simple as possible. By following this philosophy, Wing Helper combines the best of both parametric and visual worlds.

What's new in version 1.2.3

Version 1.2.3:
  • Completely redesigned mouse controls (3D view)
  • Additional standard views
  • Completely redesigned sheeting functionality
  • Support for cap strips
  • Round and cuboid spars are now located at the rib mid line, with the option to specify additional offset along the Y axis
  • Support for round, cuboid, and diamond leading edge
  • Option to directly modify the airfoil thickness, separately for the root and for the tip ribs
  • Visualization of the spar angle (live update)
  • Visualization of the "alternative dimensions" (e.g. if you specify a value in percentage, the corresponding value in millimeter and inch is also shown)
  • Import function for COR airfoil definition files (CompuFoil)
  • Implementation of the rib comb
  • Automatic alignment of spars across multiple panels (also considering the dihedral angle)
  • 2D rib preview (can be detached and freely positioned on the screen in addition to the 3D view)
  • Free placement of building tabs within a panel (with preview)
  • Panel edit dialog re-structured in order to better utilize small screens
