Configurator V1

While working on the configurator - Both of my teams noted that the weight estimator has information filled in for wing planform area, horizontal tail planform area, vertical tail planform area, wing aspect ratio, takeoff weight...... Last year we got this information from VSP since we were designing everything. This year since we have the cad models where do we get this information or what we are using from the cad models?

Our team has the same question and concern too.

Ann and Angela,

You can still use VSP if you like. However, you can extract much of this basic information from the dimensions in the CAD model. You may just have to perform some of the basic calculations.

The take-off weight is in the design specifications. Note that this is just a starting point and it may change as you modify your design.
